Who were the ancient Greeks? What did they do? What did they create? These were the people who invented theater, western philosophy, democracy, and who built the greatest armies of their time.  The founders of what we call Western Civilization, this is a history that must be known and understood for even the youngest (or oldest) student to grasp what civilization is today.
