The Greek civilization has formed the foundation for much of modern western culture and civilization. The ancient Greeks provided us with the ideas of democracy and liberty, as well as advancing the fields of philosophy, science, history and more. They were also magnificent artists, sculptors and dramatists with a flair for fine arts. Their architecture and wondrous structures such as the Parthenon continue to marvel and inspire us today. They also were fierce warriors and expert traders, dominating and colonizing the Mediterranean and Black Sea coasts.
