					UNIT INTRODUCTION SHEET
CLASSICAL CIVILIZATIONS
THE GREEKS
            In this unit you will learn a little bit about the people who lived in ancient Greece. The Greek culture is called
    classical because it is often viewed as the epitome, or perfect model, of a great culture in many respects.
    A wise old man once said, "we is the Greeks" and he was correct. Much of our way of thinking and behaving has
    been taken from the Greek way. This is true for many other "western" nations in our world as well.
