How we know about the Ancient Greeks?


We know much about the Ancient Greeks from objects which have survived for thousands of years. Archaeologists have dug up Ancient Greek artifacts and buildings and marine archaeologists have found wrecks of Ancient Greek ships and their cargoes.

Pottery has been the most useful find because it was often decorated with scenes of everyday life. We could work out what life was like by studying the pictures on the pots.

The Romans liked the buildings, statues and paintings of the Ancient Greeks and copied them. Some of these have survived.

Ancient Greece still influences our lives today

The earliest Greek civilizations thrived nearly 4,000 years ago. Yet, their culture still impacts our lives today, in the arts, in philosophy, and in science, maths, literature and politics.
