The Minoan civilization was a civilization lost for years and is belived to may be the lost city of Atlantis. It was a rich civilization buried under a hill of dust which is b…elieved to have beeen caused by a great eruption on Crete by its volcano. This volcano eruption was told to have cause tsunamis through the ocean, burring the land, and burring it in dust. The eruption was guessed to have been so bad that the smoke traveled around the world givinng of days of darkness in which crops didnt seem to grow. Another factor of the Minoan civilization was that they were very peaceful and didn't like to fight at all. there lives were full of peace wisdom and wealth and is a great mystery for all to search. It is believed that the minoans knew of the eruption before hand because not many bodies were found. Also something equisit found about the minoans is that they had running water and there houses were like mantions. They are a very intresting group of people to research so i advise checking them out. However the myceneans were a volgor group of people. they loved to fight and cause trouble and seize power. another prediction about the downflal of the minoans is that the myceneans took over there land and mixed their cultures.

Philosophy for one. Athens was home to some of the greatest Greek philosophers, including the big three that every philosophy class studies today (Socrates, Plato, and Aristot…le). Art was also a major contribution. As the center of learning in Greece, and for some time in the Roman Empire, Athens drew the greatest artist, architects, philosophers, writers, playwrights, etc. to study and learn, as well as teach and publish their own ideas. Probably Athens most important contribution was democracy, which gave power to the people. It spread quickly through Athenian colonies and some of her neighbors, including Rome, which created out of it the republic. Athens also built a strong navy and a decent army, which turn Greece sort of into a US Congress of sorts. One side with the conservative Spartans, the other with the more liberal Athenians. Other city-states began to gather around these super powers making them the only major threats within Greece.
The stories about them became the folklore of the Greek world afterit began to stabilise and spread throughout the Mediterraneanlittoral, and became a unifying core for the di…verse peoples whocalled themselves Hellenes (Greeks).
The Trojan War legends did give the independent Greek city-states acommon cultural basis, but it was just background - they understoodthat their real origins lay with the diff…erent peoples who made upthe Greek world - Achaeans, Dorians, Ionians, Aeolians etc, and itwas primarily these groupings which guided their cultures, andoverall they were conscious of their own city-state. Thesedivisions were at the basis of friendships and enmities whichinfluenced relationships.
