How did the geography and climate of Greece and the Aegean influence the development of Greek civilization?
The low lying mountain ranges of Greece separated the land into individual communities (Polis) that were virtually isolated from one another because there were no navigable river connecting them. This led to a very personal government which was conducive to the formation of democracy. Also, the smal…l size and poor soil quality of the land did not allow the city states to support large populations, which led to a mass wave of colonization. Because the climate throughout the Greek area was the same, Greek colonists could spread throughout the countryside without having to significantly change their way of life, resulting in the spread of Hellenistic culture. Colonization also instilled a strong feeling of individualism and humanism, which also led to the rise of democracy in Greece. (Information from the text book , Earth and Its Peoples).

the geography of Greece helped create many small city-states because it was so broken up.
Around 510 BC, a wealthy Athenian named Cleisthenes planned to distribute political power to the populace. He came to power after the overthrow of Hippias, who was a tyrant, and of Isagoras (his onetime ally) who tried to usurp the Athenian councils and rule Athens. His new government included al…l Athenian men, using a gathering called the Assembly. But because getting everyone together was difficult, a smaller group of 500 men, the Boule, would be chosen each year by lottery, and would handle most of the work of legislating and administering the city-state's public business. Only a few important decisions would require a city-wide vote. The Boule would have representatives from each of ten clans, called "phyles" (tribes) each created from three regions: one urban, one inland, and one seacoast. Because the Boule members were chosen at random, it was not exactly a representative democracy of the modern form. Clisthenes and his clan were successful for awhile in controlling much of the power in Athens. He called his system isonomia (equality under the law) rather than democracy. The Progression of Rule in Athens Monarchy was first. it was rule by one. Then came oligarchy, rule by a few. Tyranny was third on the list. it was rule by authority or force, by power. Finally, the ancient Greeks were known for democracy, where everyone has a say in the system of government. ( Full Answer )
The beginnings of Ancient Greece are typically located in the 12thcentury BC (or, BCE), although precise dates are impossible togive. The Greek Classical Age occurred between 500 and 350 BC (or,BCE), followed by the Hellenistic Period until approximately 150 BC(or, BCE) and then the period of Roman …domination. The formal endof Ancient Greece is often tied to the closing of the AthenianAcademy in 529 AD (or, CE). ( Full Answer )
The Greeks had a massive influence on life today. They were the first to develop democracy. And they passed down the allowance of science and technology. If they did not do this we would have most of the stuff we have today. Although most things have been improved and advanced. They also were a big …part of olive oil. They believed that if people do bad things they should be punished, that's the same as us. Greece has also influenced world entertainment. Their alphabet also influenced us today because they use letters like O= o same as our alphabet but we improved it Ancient Greeks influenced western civilization in ways like the areas of philosophy, art and architecture, and math and science.

because the ancient civilizations where there a lon time ago and the had to start to develop because it doesnt matter where it develops as long as it develops.
Geography affected the development of the Greek culture andcivilization in quite a few important ways. Perhaps mostimportantly, the rugged terrain and isolated islands of Greeceprevented any easy unification of the distinct Greek societies,which led directly to the formation of hundreds of distinctc…ity-states and cultural regions. While this fragmentation wasadverse, it was also positive: it led directly to a spirit ofindependence that was distinctive among Mediterranean civilizationsand allowed for a society such as Athens to achieve artistic andscientific wonders that became a model for the rest of the world toadmire and learn from.Greece consists mostly of mountains and forests. In antiquity thatmeant that there was little arable land to feed the population.This again meant that many Greeks sought their fortune elsewhere:either at sea by becoming tradesmen to the middle East and Egypt;and by starting colonies elsewhere. At some point they hadestablished cities all over present-day Turkey's southern coast,and they were the dominant presence in southern Italy at the timeof the rise of Rome. ( Full Answer )
The development of civilization was a result of a change in the collective psyche of a group of people. The people of our civilization see the world as something that belongs to humans. Our civilization is a way of living that functions hierarchically instead of tribally. It is a way of life that …turns natural resources such as land, water and food into tradeable commodities. The first civilizations formed independently from each other and on different continents. All of them have since been abandoned, except ours. The development of civilization that began for us in the Fertile Crescent still continues today. Our population is still growing, we are producing more food and we are expanding into areas of the planet where our culture has not gone before. ( Full Answer )
Greece is a developed country with a very high human development index (HDI) and high GDP per capita.
the citizens of greek city states such as Athens had strong patriotic feelings and valued there freedom
Geography had a profound effect on the early civilization (and alsolater) of Greece in the ancient world. With the rugged land-terrainpreventing easy unification or domination by any one group,distinct Greek populations were forced to for themselves anddevelop according to their own particular condi…tions andinspirations. Thus, great variety was possible, which gave rise todistinct accomplishments of distinct kinds. Further, the dominanceof water around Greece and its many islands forced the Greeks tobecome outstanding sea-farers. This skill enabled them to defendthemselves from invasion and spread their culture to the farcorners of the Mediterranean Basin. ( Full Answer )
The Etruscans changed Rome from a village of straw-roofed huts into a city of wood and brick buildings. They laid out streets, temples, and public buildings around a central square. Edit: The above one doesn't relate to geography though, and it doesn't mention Greece. Here is my answer: The lands…cape of Italy is similar to that of Greece, but the Apennines are not as rugged as Greece's mountains. As a result, the people in Italy were not split up into small, isolated communities like the Greeks. Italy had better farmland than Greece. With more capacity to produce food, Italy could support more people than Greece could. ( Full Answer )
Greece:: Greece was developed by a yound man named Ardadonias Greece. He always dreamed of being a traveler. One day he was traveling and he found Greece an unknown country. Then he and some close friends stayed there a couple of years and made their own civilization barely surviving on their own. T…hey made houses and stores. They thought that it'd never be a real civilization but they could only dream, right? Then a rich traveler was also traveling and he ran into Ardanious and his friends. He later paid Ardadonis for his discoveries and to make a real civilization. They decided to nam it after hm....GREECE. ( Full Answer )
it is because it had a main idea of what a real civilization would be like, it had government, politics, and everything that there was to be a civilization.
Greece is not considered the birthplace of civilization by most historians. The birthplace of civilization would be Mesopotamia. Greece is, however, called the birthplace of Western civilization, since most of the Western nations (like the nations of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, etc.) …got their ideas of philosophy, government, and art from Greek civilization. ( Full Answer )
The ancient Greece civilization had many characteristics but the most important one is bravery. It fought so many wars and also won so many. This is a true trait. :)
Greece had won its independence from Turkey about 30 years prior to the American Civil War & would have had little (if any) involvement with it.
The earliest civilization in Greece according to existing evidence goes back to 6/ 7 millennium BCE. The first Neolithic village of Europe was found in Sesklo circa 6850 BCE.
I'm doing homework with a similar question. I think it's because it was mostly surrounded my water and it wasn't all just one big land mass. There were also islands separate from the mainland.
Greece is called the birthplace of European civilization because most of the Western nations (like the nations of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, etc.) got their ideas of philosophy, government, and art from Greek civilization.
City-states developed in Greece for a multitude of reasons. Thislist is not exhaustive, but mentions a few key reasons thatcity-states developed in Greece: 1) Minimal Land Travel: The Greek Mainland (Thrace,Epirus, Boetia, Attica, and the Peloponnesus) is among the mostmountainous and hilly land …in all of Europe, making land travelbetween the city-state minimal. It also directed their efforts awayfrom expanding their influence primarily over land and explains whynon-coastal regions of Greece took the longest to develop. 2) Marine Travel and Naval Strength: Most of thecity-states were relatively close to the water, especially thosefound on Crete, Cyprus, the Dodecanese Islands, or CycladicIslands. Greek city-states favored marine travel which was morereliable and cost-effective than land travel. As a result, manycity-states had strong navies as opposed to having strong armies.(Sparta is the one major exception to that rule.) 3) Chronic Disunity: Because of the prevalence ofstrong navies, the difficulty of land travel, and the presence ofmany invasion choke-points (the most famous being Thermopylae), theGreek city-states were never completely unified until Alexander theGreat conquered them all. (Sparta did defeat Athens in thePeloponnesian War, but only held onto that victory for a very shorttime. In addition, Sparta never expanded its power into Boetia orover the Cycladic Islands - which would have been the next logicalplaces to expand.) 4) Pastoralism and Fishing: The mountainousterrain made growing crops very difficult. The two crops that theGreeks were able to cultivate were olives and wheat, but wheat wasmuch more difficult to maintain than the olives. This forced Greeksto resort to pastoralism (primarily animal-based agriculture) andthey raised goats, sheep, and pigs. As a result, there was a lot ofdairy and meat in the Greek diet relative to contemporaneouscivilizations (although significantly less than today). Inaddition, because of the access to the sea, Greek cuisine includedvast amounts of shellfish, mollusks, and proper fishes. 5) Iron Age: The common Greek people of the four branches ofGreece, Doric, Aeolic, Ionian, and Attic, were no longer dependenton the kings of the Mycenaean Era who had consolidated power withtheir wealth and ability to possess bronze weapons. With the adventand easier accessibility of iron Greeks were able to forge weaponsfor themselves and were able to form states along naturalgeographical lines within Greece. This happened gradually and sodifferent states had evolved differently which saw Homeric stylekingdoms like Macedonia and Epirus exist with diarchies like Spartaand democracies like Athens and for a brief time Argos.

Mountains divided the people. In ancient times , Greece was not one united or unified country because of the mountains
The civilization of ancient Greece developed near the shores of theAegean Sea. It also developed on islands in the Aegean Sea.
According to modern research, specially by Ian Morris, in his paper Economic Growth in Ancient Greece and by Morgen Herman Hanser demographic studies on the total population of the ancient Greek polis civilization show that ancient Greece experienced significant economic growth and development, by p…re-industrial standards. From the 8th century BCE to the 4th century BCE, the median size of houses floor plans excavated from the ruins of ancient greek cities increased from 45-50 square meters to 230 square meters. While the number of shipwrecks found and dated in the mediterranean sea continuously increased from th 8th century BCE to the 4th. Ancient Greek cities had developed sophisticated economic institutions for the time, as money entered in general use in the 6th and 5th centuries BCE, while banking and other commercial institutions flourished in Athens by the 5th century BCE. Trade was very important for the Ancient Greek economy, as Hansen suggested that half of the total food consumption of the Greek mainland was satisfied by imports. ( Full Answer )

Now everything is based on their culture, they are kinda like the ones who started the things.
Mesopotamia was the first civilized society, so it is known as the Cradle of Civilization. Greece was known as the Cradle of Democracy. All modern democratic societies are based on it as well as Ancient Rome. It was where Democracy was born. Africa is known as the Cradle of Life.
The answer to that used to be easy: The Garden of Eden, which we assume to be in the area of Iraq between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Then we thought from Richard Leakey's archeology in Africa that we all came from a black women who Leakey called 'Lucy" because she had DNA in common with eve…ryone today. Then some archeologists found some errors, or at least questionable conclusions on Leakey's part, and thought that we all came from somewhere in Europe or nearby Asia. Now they think that our common ancestor was African, again, and that these people walked to the other places where we find remains of their civilizations. Some argue that this isn't likely what happened. We may someday know the true answers to questions like yours. ( Full Answer )
Ancient Greece is described as the glory of an ancient civilization bcause it was one of the most civilized countries of it's time.

Ancient Greece, particularly Athens, set the stage for the European world that followed. The beginnings of art, sculpture, architecture, poetry, theater, history, mathematics, engineering, physics, rhetoric, democracy, and philosophy, all go their start in Ancient Greece.
It's not. The "cradle" of WORLD civilization is Mesopotamia (the Middle East, basically). Greece is, however, considered the birthplace of Western civilization and thought because they invented democracy and they had all those famous philosophers and scientists.
Three of the many important developments om Greece and Rome that influenced western civilization were the concept of democracy, the republic form of government and the Christian movement.

Tyrants usually preceded democracy. They were appointed invarious cities by popular will to get rid of the aristocraticcliques and run a city-state to the general benefit of the peoplerather than the vested interested of a few. A tyrant had tomaintain a bodyguard to protect himself from the aristocr…ats, andto hire them had to impose a tax on the people, which eventuallymade the tyrant as unpopular as the aristocrats had been. So thecities progressively expelled the tyrants and some tried theexperiment with democracy - with mixed success. . Failures with democracy resulted in some cases in a return toaristocrats, monarchs or tyrants to sort out the mess. Most citiesthen turned to a compromise of a form of limited democracy wherethe magistrates allowed the people to vote yes or no on issues theyput before them. ( Full Answer )
