Answer Architecture (the Parthenon), painting, sculpture (Myron, Phidias), philosophy (Thales, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle), mathematics (Pythagorus, Euclid), medicine (…Hippocrates), drama (comedies by Aristophanes [Clouds], tragedies by Sophocles [Oedipus Rex] and Euripidies [The Trojan Women])
AnswerThey started putting too much faith in the gods and got so scared of them that they didn't do anything that might them in the slightest way. AnswerThere is a bit …of a problem with this question, because there was a time called the Greek Dark Ages, from about 1200 to 800 BC, and there was a time in the Dark Ages when very little was written in Greece. We do not know what brought the Greek Dark Ages about. There is a link to an article below that discusses it. In the European Dark Ages, there was a time of very little writing in the Byzantine Empire that lasted from about 630 to about 750 AD. This happened because peoples' attention was taken up by the spread of Islam and the military actions that entailed.
Civilizations collapse and fail because of many factors: Over population. Which causes over use of resources... Destruction of natural environment. For example: cutting do…wn trees (deforestation), over farming (using soil until it no-longer produces enough crop to sustain the people that depend upon the crops). The soil really needs to rest and be renourished (add compost and fertilizer). Crop failures from other sources (volcanic eruption, extreeme temperatures, pests such as grass hoppers, ants, rodents, and locusts...) Polution... Governments exacting too much tax from their constituents. For whatever reason the government seems to grow and tax until the people can no-longer support the out of control government. Governments making wrong choices for their people Wars. Including civil wars, and genocides People becoming too used to their many conveniences and high lifestyle, then not being able to live without those conveniences And I'm sure there are other reasons
The earliest Greek people were the Minoans. They lived on the island of Crete 3000 years ago and their civilization lasted for 2000 years. Greece is a peninsula that is ea…sily accessible by boat. This feature made it an ideal place to settle and because the Minoans were trading with other countries, Greece was well known.
Egyptian civilization was among the earliest on Earth, beginning several thousand years BC. The Greek civilization in the Aegean occurred much later, following the Minoan and …Mycenaean civilizations. Greek city-states appeared around 900 BC and persisted until their conquest by Macedon and finally Rome after 200 BC.
He wrote The Iliad and The Odyssey. Not only did he write the Iliad and the Odyssey... He helped to organize the pantheon of Greek gods, he gave the Greeks role models to liv…e up to, and he wrote about a period of history that would have otherwise been forgotten. Homer wrote about the Trojan War and it's aftermath. The Trojan War happened during the Greek Dark Ages (c. 1100-800 BCE). The only written history that tells the story of the dark ages are Homer's epic poems. HE DIED ABOUT 800 BC
A large part of ancient Greek culture was its concept of a variety of gods, goddesses and demi gods. They can be called pagan gods and the Greeks to one degree or another …believed that pleasing their gods was a way to find peace and prosperity. The pagan style of beliefs did not influence western civilization in any large measure.
Mostly Egypt and Persia.
The ancient egyptians civilization collapsed because of internal issues. They were not invaded, or attacked. The Egyptian civilization collapsed because of proverty, disease, …and malnourment. You can find tracings of this history an ancient walls, or in records.
The continents that ancient greek had civilization on was Europe and Asia
A large war happened: the Peloponessian Wars (431 to 404 BC). Athens and Sparta went to war then their allies joined in. After many long bloody years, Sparta finally won and t…here were years of peace. But Sparta was severely weakened. Then Athens revolted. There was no unity among the city-states and Sparta had lost much of its empire. In 338 BC, the Macedonians under Philip II and his son Alexander conquered Greece, and the subsequent empires were eventually subsumed by Rome between 149 and 146 BC.
Democracy, philosophy, mathematics, astronomy, etc. Some of these have older roots still, but the Western world derives it from the Hellenes.
Government Aristotle and other Greek scholars examined society and government and the effects of democratic principles in Athens and other city-states. Philosophy The Greek…s advanced their own concepts of life and existence, although they had a polytheistic heritage. Science and Logic The Greeks developed much of the modern scientific process, although they lacked the means to make the most accurate observations. They could only measure using normal human senses. Mathematics The Greeks developed math and geometry in conjunction with their scientific experimentation. Architecture Buildings, mostly neoclassical government buildings, have a lot in common with Greek buildings. There are also a lot of Greek-inspired statues in America.
Contributions to the development of democracy What did the acient greek and roman civilizations have in common
