  • 2.  The history of Greek traditionally encompasses the study of the Greek people , the areas they ruled historically and the territory now composing the modern state of Greek.  The scope of Greek habitation and ruled varied much through ages , and, as a result , the history of Greek is similarly elastic in what it includes . Each era has it own related sphere of interest  The first Greek speaking tribes known as the Mycenaean's , are generally thought to arrived in Greek mainland between the late third and the first half second millennium BC-- probably between 1900 and 1600 BC 1  When the Mycenaean's invaded there were various non Greek – speaking , indigenous pre-Greek people already living on the Greek mainland and practicing agriculture , as they had done since the 7th millennium BC.{2}
  • 3.  As it geographical peaks, Greek civilization spread from Greece to Egypt and Hindukush mountain in Afghanistan since then, Greek minorities have remained in former Greek territories (eg., turkey, Italy, Libya etc)and Greek emigrant have assimilated into differing societies across the globe (eg., north America, Australia , northern Europe etc ) still today, most Greeks lives in modern states of Greece (independence since 1821) Cyprus.
  • 4.  Distance between city-states, clothing, trade, and democracy were amongst some of things that were influenced by the geography of Ancient Greece. The Greek lived in a Mediterranean climate. Winters were mild and wet, and they were able to grow grapes and olives. Summers were warm and dry. Grapes and olives were one of the few plants that could survive droughts. Mountains cover Seventy-five percent of Greece. The land was difficult to cultivate and the sea surrounded Greece. This made trade extremely easy because the Greeks could get what they could not grow. They were also able to bring back innovative ideas from other cultures that they traded with. Because mountains cut off the Greek, this led to the formation of city- states. There was limited interaction and unity of the city-states, which ultimately created river lies amongst them. Such physical barriers prevented a unified Greece. The sea became a vital part of the Greek society. There were hundreds of bays, skilled sailors, and trade of olive oil, wine, and marble for grains, metals, and ideas, technology, and philosophies was common trade items. The Greeks were able adopt the Phoenician alphabet, which later become the basis for all western alphabets. It also promoted democracy. Although the sea encouraged trade, the mountainous terrain enabled absolute rulers to gain power, ultimately leading to the demise of the Ancient Greek democracy and thus creating war mongers.
