The glory of Ancient Greece.
When we hear the term "Ancient Greece," we usually think of the Classical period, which spanned the fourth and fifth centuries B.C. But the beginnings of ancient Greece actually go back much further in time... to about 3,000 B.C. This colorful, eight-part chronology traces the history of Greece from the Minoan Age through the Hellenistic Age.

The Greek City-State: Classical Athens.
By the fourth century B.C., Athens had become one of the largest Greek city-states, and one of the most urban as well. Seven lively stories present the politics and philosophy, the art and lifestyle of the ancient Athenians, and provides a clear picture of the grace and beauty that was classical Athens.

During ancient times, the people of Greece enjoyed a culture in many ways more vibrant, more civilized, and more artistic than any we know today. The Thomas S. Klise Company CD-ROM program, The Road To Ancient Greece, uses colorful artwork and a fascinating storyline to trace the history of ancient Greek civilization from its roots in the Minoan culture to its final fall at the hands of the Romans. Users can explore the politics, philosophy, art, and lifestyle of the ancient Greeks. The program also features ancillary activities: anagrams, puzzles, educational games, and projects, all related to the subject of Ancient Greece.
