- The Greek government was not a monarchy with a king and queen. Instead the Greek government was a city-state. A city-state is when each city has its own separate political unit. The men were a very important part of the Greek civilization because they were the ones that ran the government.
- Take a look at Diana, roman name for the Greek goddess Artemis. More than once the late Princess Diana has been compared with Artemis, particularly for her role as protector of children, and of the vulnerable. Those who were unjustly treated by the patriarchy sought her help, and Diana took action in their behalf.
- The Greeks, after their country had been reduced into a province, imputed the triumphs of Rome, not to the merit, but to the FORTUNE, of the republic. The inconstant goddess, who so blindly distributes and resumes her favours, had now consented (such was the language of envious flattery) to resign her wings, to descend from her globe, and to fix her firm and immutable throne on the banks of the Tiber.
- For prior to the invention of writing, societies were nomadic, organised in tribes, each tribe made of less than 100 individuals. There was hardly any division of labour, other than sexual. The tribe would designate a chief, and modern ethnology tells us the chief had very little power.
- Their reign was specific to a certain area of worship. As in many cultures, some goddesses were represented with varying names in different countries.
- The font of all wisdom The Gutenberg Revolution John Man 312pp, Review Subtitles are becoming ridiculously long-winded. The one attached to John Man’s little book claims that it is “The story of a genius and an invention that changed the world”. This is true enough, though it says much about our increasingly semi-literate society that the name Johann Gutenberg alone is no longer assumed to be instantly recognisable.
- The most important thing at the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part, just as the important thing about life is not to conquer but to struggle well. The words spoken by Pierre de Coubertin, father of the Modern Summer Olympic Games. Baron Pierre de Coubertin may have intended for the new Olympic Games ?to be a period of concord in which all differences of status, religion, politics and race would be forgotten? but unfortunately as the Games have progressed, so too have the political overtones associated with them.
- Atlantis was a continent of the Atlantic Ocean where, according to Plato, an advanced civilization developed some 11,600 years ago. Plato affirms that, as the result of a huge volcanic cataclysm of worldwide extent, this continent sunk away underseas, disappearing forever.
- 8500 BC during the ????????????? Palaeolithic period. Evidence of human activity was found in cave dwellings near ????????????? Liopetri, though it is not known whether they were just hunting parties passing ????????????? through or permanent settlers.
- It can be argued that the vanguard of development has always been reflected in the arts of a culture. It is the poets, the dreamers and artists who are the architects of the future; the ones who build the world they want to live in, the ones who dream out loud 1.
- Egyptian religion is very diverse because of the constant growth of religious beliefs over many centuries of new ideas being put in without taking any old beliefs. To the ancient Egyptian people, this diversity of beliefs and gods was acceptable and the people looked to the images of gods as natural, animal and human life.
- Athens was Classical Greece?s most famous city-state.In the Classical Athens?s society,men were recognized as the superior beings,whereas women and slaves were the lower form of peoples in the society at that time.(Perry et al 1996:63).In this essay ,I?ll first investigate the rights of Classical Athenian women and slaves from several different aspects and make comparisons between the two before judging whether women had significantly more rights than slaves.
- “Some in the struggle for existence in America will escape, their successes will be blazoned forth; those who fail and die, silence will cover them…who cares for a few children of the poor more or less – who cares for a few girls more or less, surrendered to infamy… -Charlotte Smith O’Brien
- If the Enlightenment was a movement, which started among a tiny elite, and slowly spread to make its influence felt throughout society, Romanticism was more widespread both in its origins and influence. No other intellectual/artistic movement has had comparable variety, reach, and staying power since the end of the Middle Ages.
- Today we swim in a sea of ever-changing technology that affects us as much as our thoughts and actions shape it. The technology we have chosen, either by the preferences of those who use it, or the agendas of those who own and benefit from it, has had its own influence on us from gross examples such as increased pollution, or a higher Western-style standard of living, to the way one person perceives another.
- The pyramids of Ancient Egypt are as fascinating and intriguing, as they are breathtaking. Egyptologists and historians have long debated the question of who built the pyramids, and for what reason. There are many different and often conflicting theories in regard to the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
- Astronomy originated earlier in human history than the other natural sciences. In the earliest civilisations, the divine or occult was used to explain the movement of the stars and the Sun: the Aztecs, for example, believed that the Sun had to be nourished with a sacrifice of blood and a beating human heart, or else it would vanish.
- Legends of the lost city The Future of the Past: Archaeology in the 21st Century Eberhard Zangger 285pp, Weidenfeld Eberhard Zangger explores our knowledge of the lands bordering the Mediterranean before the golden age of ancient Greece (yes, the title is a little misleading), and pushes the general thesis that archaeological orthodoxy currently has it all wrong.
- Many believe that there is a great difference between westerners and the native people of the lands they conquered. The truth is, that there is not great distinction, except in the minds of white men. Westerners such as the French, Spanish, English and Portuguese have always believed in their own superiority.
