Greek blog#5

Top 5 Ancient Greek Contributions:
1. Modern Government structure( how we base our democracy)
2.Military drilling and schooling

All 5 gave modern day society many major things in our lives. Our government structure or base was built off of the example of the Ancient Greek city-states. Our military drills are also structured in the way the ancient Spartans strictly drilled their soldiers.Much of our knowledge of Greek mythology derives from the Odyssey and Iliad which were all made during the time of the Ancient Greeks. Our government architecture models that of Ancient Greek buildings, especially the column work at the Lincoln Memorial and the White House. Finally, theatre is a big thing in everyday life from Hollywood to school plays, all originating from the public shows in Ancient Greece. All are great contributions to modern day society and are essential for our further development into the future.
