Lesson 3: Birth of Democracy in Athens
Greece is the birthplace of democracy and the story of that development is fascinating. Seen as more than just a right by the citizens of Athens, it was a duty and it was something they were willing to die for.

Lesson 4: Sparta
The Greek city-state Sparta was one of the harshest and most militant societies in history. Despite a relatively small population, this society dominated the Greek peninsula for centuries.

For a brief shining moment in history the cultural heart of the Western World was Athens. From this city, democracy, philosophy, culture, and the arts were the centre of this society. This all came to a violent end when war erupted with Athen's eternal rival Sparta.

Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ The Delian League
♦ Athens as a beacon for the Arts

The blending of cultures begun by his invasion of Asia would enrich the Western World for centuries to come.
