Is ancient Greece and Greece the same?
Greece is a country existing from the 19th century onwards. Ancient Greece is a phrase for all the cities-states in the area where the Greek state is located today.

Greece was a republic! Their republic governing system inspired our democratic-republic system, in the US. Each city-state elected a group of representatives to vote on issues and govern, similarly to our democratic-republic, except that in the U.S, we, the people, also have a say beyond voting (thi…nk election-day ballot questions, strikes, petitions, etc.). This is because in ancient Greece, politicians would sometimes pass laws that were unfair or just for their benefit, and the people wouldn't be able to protest. Each city-state had a polis, or a meeting place, where the representatives would vote. For e.g. the 'Acropolis' in Athens. (MORE)

I don't know ALL of what they used, but I know that they had two types of spoons; the ligula and the cochleare. The ligula was used for soup and soft foods, and the cochleare was used for shellfish and eggs.
Ancient Greece (Hellas as they called it) was distributed around the Mediterranean and Black Seas . It was not a country but hundreds of independent city-states which adopted Greek (Hellenic as they called it) culture. These cities were scattered around the coastlines and islands from Spain, sout…hern France, southern Italy, Sicily, north Africa, Asia Minor to southern Russia (those are the present country names - they were different then). (see map link) When Alexander the Great captured the Persian Empire and he and his successors promoted Hellenism in those areas too , but it was mostly a veneer, and faded quickly in the outlying areas. His empire was split up amongst his generals, who made themselves into kings (Hellenistic Kingdoms) and grabbed what they could in the eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Rome progressively absorbed them into its empire by the end of the 1st Century BCE. (MORE)
There are many, but I won't speculate! To begin with, AncientGreece's Olympic Games were only for men. Nowadays, that's nottrue, otherwise Shawn Johnson wouldn't be as well known :). Thepolitical structure is not the same anymore, either. You know thosepictures of Greece with the dome-shaped houses,… all white? Greeceonly has a few cities that have those houses. And, the societywasn't, well, as modern as it is now! But there are many beautiful,breath-taking historical sites you can visit. Both modern Greeceand Ancient Greece are fascinating to learn about, you should visitGreece! -from an 11 year old Greek :) A broader view: The ancient Greek world was comprised o a couple of thousandindependent city-states scattered around the Mediterranean andBlack Seas. These cities were linked by cultural background andexpedient alliances, but were regularly at war with each other.Modern Greece is a single country in the eastern Mediterranean, butstill has is internal infighting. ___________ * The first woman to win at the Olympic games was Kyniska, a womanfrom Sparta in 396 BC. Women also had their own Heraean gamesdedicated to Hera, the wife of Zeus. The Heraean was the femaleversion of the Olympic games and took place every four years.Homer's Odyssey and Xenophon's Symposium describe women playingwith balls, driving chariots, swimming, and wrestling. Running, asthe Heraea tested, was also very prevalent. ** Modern Greece is a single country but the people whether north inMacedonia or south in Crete, still identify by their states whichare still defined by ancient natural boundaries. When they foughtamongst themselves it was usually a push to extend boundaries orfor the more prominent states, to gain hegemony (leadership andfirst place) over the Greek states. (MORE)

2000 B.C.E. There is no definite answer on this question. Although 2000 B.C.E.-1 C.E. can serve to you as a guideline it is severely generalized, of course. Ancient Greece is a modern term which serves to distinct between ancient, medieval and modern times, roughly.

Most of Greece's history was located in the city of Athens and Sparta, who were at the time two city-states.
Ancient means very old and this Greek era was a very long time ago. That's two thousand and more years ago. A lot of times references to Greece are actually to ancient Greece. But, there is also Greece - as is modern Greece.
Ancient Rome and ancient Greece (specifically Athens) were similar in many ways. When the ancient Romans conquered Greece they were inspired by the Greek culture and transferred many aspects of it to their own. For example, the Roman gods were more or less identical to their Greek counterparts excep…t with different names (Zeus became Jupiter, Athena became Juno etc.). Also the Romans copied and, in many cases, improved upon the Greek style of architecture. Also most Roman teachers and secretaries were Greek slaves. (MORE)

A democracy is a type of government that we Americans use today. Democracy means "rule by the people" . In other words, meaning the citizens of ancient Greece had the freedom to vote or to have many other rights in their city-state. Athens used democracy. Hoped this helped! :)
Democracy basically started off in Athens during the Classical Period (c.478-336 BC) in the city state (Polis). Athenian democracy can be traced back to the reforms of Solon (584BC) who was a political leader and poet. When the people got sick of a monarchy, the aristocrats took over. The aristocrat…s were the rich group of people who provided money for such things as, weapons, supplies, or battlefields. They were close with the king and helped him make decisions. Eventually they thought they were better, and more powerful then the King. They took over and eventually made an Oligarchy, then a tyranny, and then, through time, created a democracy where citizens helped decided they wanted to govern themselves. It was different back then though, only free men could become citizens. Women, children, and slaves did all the work at home. Although, they influenced how we vote for our leaders, and how they have a four year term. (MORE)
They used infantry and cavalry. After the Persian wars they also used archers (the Greeks didnt like bows as they consider it a coward's weapon, but after they experience how damaging it is they adopt it). The infantry had light (peltastes) and heavy (hoplites) soldiers and the main unit was the p…halanx. Usually the peltastes were in front (armed with throwing spears and slings) and retreated behind the hoplites (spears, small blades and shields). At the flanks there was the cavalry which was lightly armed. (MORE)

Value ancient Greeks and "News". .... Dawn, 06/01/1962: "More than 150 scientists from the University and the Academy of Moscow have agreed wholeheartedly with the scientific view of Mr. Mars Poulianos underlined the seriousness of the work and not stingy on their expressions spoke verylaudatory w…ords about him. Dr S. A. Tokarev, professor of ethnography at the University of Moscow and head of the Department of Ethnography of the peoples of Europe at the Institute of Ethnography of the Academy of Sciences in Moscow, said: The work of Aris N. Poulianos exceptional interest for the ethnographic science. The pooled and treated statistically huge stock of anthropological research among the Greeks first time introduces a new kind of science sources for the study of a crucial problem, as is the origin of the Greek people. So far on this issue in science has been generally accepted view that modern Greeks historically have very little in common with the ancient Greeks the founders of the ancient culture that modern Greeks for the most part represent descendants of Slavs, Albanians and other peoples metokisan Greece and merged with the Greeks of the Byzantine era. Unlike the author of this thesis, convincingly and based on similar material, shows that whatever the influence of the Slavs and other peoples who came into contact with the Greeks, the people of modern Greece is basically a descendant of the ancient population of the Balkans and the islands of the Aegean. The renowned anthropologist at the University of Moscow, Dr. J. J. Rogkinsky notes that the southern part of the Balkans is in Europe, where crossing the broad border zone between the area of ââDinaric and prosthiasiatikis race. So in this area can be found some of the general problems of classification of the peoples of Europe and the Asian front. "In addition it should be noted that in this work finds its position and the criticism of racist constructs connection with the acquisition of ancient Greek culture." (Note: You mean the racist theories that argue that modern Greeks are not descendants of the ancient and that is why their culture is far less developed countries. However, beyond the unrealistic correlation - if, for example, compare the traditions - the scientific confirmation of the biological continuity of the Greeks proves once again that it is mainly geographical and socio-historical conditions that shape the cultural level of a nation). "The director of the Anthropology Division of the Institute of Ethnography of the Academy of Sciences in Moscow Dr M. C. Levine said: ... It may seem paradoxical to note that many people in Europe were studied anthropological worse than the people of Australia, Melanesia and other distant countries. Among the countries of Europe, Greece is one of the least studied ... The work of A. N. Poulianos fills this gap. The author holds the full methodology of anthropological research, strictly complied all the necessary conditions and given the appropriate attention. The director of the Anthropological Institute and Museum of Anthropology of Moscow Dr. B. P. Giakimof said: "My view is that the work of A. N. Poulianos represents the most perfect summary for the Anthropology of the Greeks." On the other side of the Atlantic, the U.S., the director of the Anthropology Department of the Smithsonian Institute G.. L. Angels in American Journal of Physical Anthropology (American Journal of Physical Anthropology No. 22, vol 5, 1964, p. 343) in book review of "Origin of the Greeks" writes: "Mars Poulianos ... correctly concludes that a full genetic continuity from ancient to contemporary times ...Â». NEWS, 01.25.1962: "The scientific research of A. N. Poulianos rejects the dogmatic theory misellinos Fallmerayer German historian, who lived 1790-1861, the era of Greek struggle for independence - and who (Falmerayer) quite dogmatically, ie without prior anthropological research - and therefore unscientific aftapodeiktos - tried to support his theory ekslavismou Greece. The researcher concludes that anthropological research with the necessary historical and linguistic evidence is required to solve problems ethnogenetic. This is a reflection of all past and therein lies the historic value. If the past helps us to understand this, this helps us to imagine the future. KRITES - Aegean - Peloponnese - SARAKATSANA Then Mars Poulianos studied about 10,000 more people and hundreds of skeletons from various regions of Eurasia. The groups of Greeks who were less represented in the doctoral thesis (Aegean Peloponnese Pindus) were studied in 1965 with his return to Greece. THE ORIGIN OF CRETE - ISLANDS The main conclusion (A. Poulianos, 1971, 1999) is that the modern population of Crete (in a sample of 3,000 persons) and all the Aegean with the mainland of Thrace and Asia Minor remained unchanged at least from the Minoan era and is native to the Aegean anthropological type. Migrations made at various times brought slight changes, but did not change the morphology of the original type. The effects do not exceed 1-3% and this shows again the consistency of the indigenous inhabitants in general of the Aegean basin, at least since the Mesolithic era, ie before 15,000 years. In 1987 the Italian anthropology professor J.. Fakinos announced at the 2nd World Congress in Turin Paleoanthropology of the existence of human skeleton from the island 50,000 years, which indeed shows the morphology of the modern (Homo sapiens) and not neantertaleiou man. The news never reached the Greek media, as the Ministry of Culture has so far shown his usual indifference. In 1999 the medical journal Tissue Antigens (Tissue Antigens, Vol 53, January) published an article about hematologic origin of the Cretans. The basic conclusion that ... Cretans are closest to the Berbers, the Semites and the Japanese than with the other Greeks (who came from somewhere north 4000 years ago in Greece) and that ... so it is unlikely that African and Middle Eastern origin of Cretan 10,000 years ago. Article 7 Spaniards signed with 3 Greek professor of medicine and unfortunately come to their conclusions lightly represented as only 135 inhabitants and only studied the gene HLA. Also, unethical move, ie without taking into account the past and of course more reliable methodology anthropological literature (phenotype, ie the external anthropological traits representing thousands of genes). Thus, in the literature are not found and the work of A. Murad ("The distribution of human blood groups and other polymorphisms, ed Oxf., 1976, p. 1055), indicating that no reliable study of the HLA gene because, with it came the unfounded conclusion that the Basques, Icelanders and the Congolese are related to each other more than any other populations. It may be noted however that since 1965, had not yet even started the bio-molecular comparison of human DNA, have sprung up such views, followed by others and, oddly coordinated in the same direction (eg see NEW YORK TIMES - "Cretans labeled non-Greek people", 17/4/1966, in spite of contrary posts eight 15/4/1966 Greek newspapers such as Daily: The population of Crete abode anthropologikos unchanged since the Neolithic period (see and a specific page). From the historical, linguistic and archaeological reports of the above contributors haematologist, it becomes obvious that they are aware of such issues, and acrobatics into a patchwork of specialty unproven assumptions. For example, say: when the Sahara dried up 10,000 years before, perhaps the Berbers migrated to Crete and established the Minoan civilization. So instead look at (the Berbers) how to survive, they built ships, who had time and migrated en masse?. Not even the writers have reflected whether the Cretans thalassokratorias traveling in reverse, as reported by numerous sources? It was 10,000 years before the era of the last cataclysm? The Sahara dried up before 5500 years (see Sarah Simpson, Scientific American Oct. 1999). If it was not the proverbial often fanciful those who do not have the education to deal comprehensively with similar issues, one could perceive the very top that are similar to considerations of Cyprus, and not just as a bad joke. But we bring as an example of the above article from Tissue Antigens to apparent how easy it is someone, intentionally or not, irrelevant to lathepsei. Only regret is the threshold of the third millennium there are journals that publish uncritically such "works, while". THE POPULATION OF PELOPONNISOU Preliminary communication research ("Human", 1977, vol 4, p. 5-36) made under the guidance of the Martian Poulianos Pitsios, who confirmed the basic conclusions of the "Origin of the Greeks, and completed the relevant anthropological data with anthropometry 1582 people. In 1978 he published in a separate version with the words "Library of the Anthropological Association of Greece, No. 2, dedicated (with love) to his teacher. -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------------ Greek geneticist working in the U.S. believe that the analysis of genetic material from ancient bones and teeth will soon reveal the origin of the Mycenaeans and Minoans. The ongoing investigations have shown that the Greeks living in the Mediterranean by 2900 BC, about 1,000 years more than believed until now. As explained by Dr. George Stamatoyannopoulos, a professor at the University of Washington in Seattle: "The survey is intended to diagnose [...] the DNA of the ancient Greeks and to determine their origin, whether they came from the north, where they came from the steppes Russia or Central Europe, if then. The team, which includes scientists from Greece, has made a genetic analysis of approximately 50 and 30 teeth Minoans Mycenaeans. Searches are now almost as many specimens preserved pulp to make it possible to draw conclusions. Regardless, a group of researchers at the University of Manchester genetic techniques to examine the bones discovered by Schliemann in the royal tombs of Mycenae, to see if the dead were family members or unrelated persons. Mr. Stamatoyannopoulos believes that, apart from information on the movements and relations of the Greek population, once the genetic testing will offer other items such as spiritual characteristics of our ancient ancestors. -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------ According to research by Professor Constantine Trianatfyllidi Department of Biology, Aristotle 75% - 80% of the current mitochondrial DNA of Greek origin and has palaioloithiki formed after three waves of different movements, from 50,000 to 9,000 years ago. This research was conducted in 143 men and 2,400 Greek males of other populations (Europe, Mediterranean, Asia Minor, Africa and China). Paternal DNA DNA is the male ancestors (fathers) us. According to his analysis of the genetic composition of the present inhabitants of Europe are the result of two migratory movements: 1) During the Paleolithic period and 2) during the Neolithic period that occurred from east to west Mother DNA Is DNA Ancestry women (mothers) us. Besides the above two migrations occurred earlier and another one in the opposite direction from above. People in this case team moved from Europe to the Middle East. This explains the fact that 5% - 20% of the sequences of mitochondrial DNA of the inhabitants of the Middle East has a European origin. Relationship between the Greeks and other populations All evidence suggests that the genetic continuity of the Greek people with very little intermingling of the neighboring white populations, and none of Negro and Mongolian.The genetic composition of the Greeks at a rate of 99.6% Caucasian, white. The contribution of other groups is very low (0.4%). For reasons apparently religious, cultural or linguistic Greeks have not been largely intermingling with neighboring nations. Similarities Greeks with neighboring nations 1) The Balkan populations: compared the gene frequencies of several polymorphic systems among the population of Greece and Bulgaria. The results showed that differences in the genetic evidence does not allow us to talk about common ancestry of the other Balkan peoples to the Greeks. The teacher refers to rates if necessary to mention. 2) Mediterranean populations: The conclusions of the study the genetic relatedness of Mediterranean populations revealed that the Greeks have particular affinity with the Italians. Nearly 22% of the Y chromosome of the inhabitants of Apulia (southern Italy) comes from the Greeks. -If you made a classification based on the degree of genetic relatedness between the Greeks and other peoples of the northern Mediterranean, we would say that first of all the Greeks like the Italians, after the French, after the last Spanish and Turkish- says the professor. To conclude the above evidence of overestimation of the migratory movements (Slavs, etc.). In fact, the movement of such people was very small and disorganized because of the difficulties of those times to try to greatly affect the basic genetic structure of local residents. (MORE)

First of all, modern Greece is a unified country under a single government.
