Western Civilization has been influenced by many cultures, from Rome
to America, but it was born in Ancient Greece. Centuries before
Julius Caesar conquered much of the known world, the Ancient Greeks
were laying a foundation that has supported nearly 3000 years of
European history. Ancient Greece brings to mind philosophers like
Aristotle and Socrates, Olympian gods, the beginnings of democracy,
great conquering armies like those of Alexander the Great, and savage
internecine battles, none more famous than the duel to the death
between Athens and Sparta.
