Join Art In History in an exploration of the Ancient Greek Geometric Period.

Greece, the birthplace of Democracy, was approximately the size of modern-day New York. Mountains cover seventy-five percent of Greece. The country consists of a peninsula and many outer islands. By 750 B.C., the polis, or city-state, became the center of Greek life. The term politics comes from this Greek Term. Each polis surrounded a hill that was fortified on top. This building was called the acropolis. The acropolis in Athens is one that is used in most pictures of Greece. Between 750 B.C. and 700 B.C. Homer wrote the Iliad and the Odyssey. These epic poems tell the story of the Trojan War. Homer's epics tell a great deal about life in Ancient Greece, stressing certain ideals (or values) and the importance of human excellence. The best evidence of Ancient Greek activity, both historically and culturally, has been provided by archaeological finds of pottery.

Replicate the Greek Vessel Homer would have used in 750 B.C. and let the learning begin today!

We are learning about Greek history and thought a hands-on project would enhance our studies.

BEST ANSWER: No, I would not recommend it for drinking. But It is fantastic as a decorative piece for a project.
