This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - The Greco-Persian Wars. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Greco-Persian Wars, also called Persian Wars were a series of conflicts between the Achaemenid Empire of Persia and the Greek city-states that started in 499 BC and lasted until 449 BC. Darius and Xerxes sought to control Greece around the Mediterranean coast by absorbing Greek colonies.
The fighting was most intense during 2 invasions that Persia launched against mainland Greece between 490 and 479. The fighting began when Cyrus the Great conquered the Greek-inhabited region of Ionia in 547 BC.
Although the Persian empire was at the peak of its strength, the collective defense mounted by the Greeks overcame seemingly impossible odds and even succeeded in liberating Greek city-states on the fringe of Persia itself. In the end the Greek triumph ensured the survival of Greek culture and political structures long after the demise of the Persian empire.
