Age, Athens, history and culture and later Greek civilization. Each main topic includes many more bulletin facts on it and

The Greek Civilization website is mostly just about Greek life. There is no information on the Romans or the Greek government.
Nothing about Emperors or major wars is included. The site does have a lot of informative facts on Greek though; all this
still pertains with the unit we are learning right now. This site might have ideas or facts that may have been left out of
the textbook or other websites. The site is a good resource for just finding information on the Greek lifestyle but not Greek
government or Greek wars.
