Ancient Greece  (Part 1)

Ancient Greece is a civilization belonging to a period of Greek history that lasted from the Archaic period of the 8th to 6th centuries BC to the end of antiquity (ca. 600 AD). Immediately following this period was the beginning of the Early Middle Ages and the Byzantine era. Classical Antiquity in Greece is preceded by the Greek Dark Ages (c. 1100 - c. 750 BC) 

The Classical period (c. 500 - 323 BC) is characterised by a style which was considered by later observers to be exemplary (i.e. 'classical')—for instance the Parthenon.
