Conclusion: Greece’s mainland was mountainous and horrid. They could not rely on agriculture for their food supply. Since their mainland was so irregularly shaped the mainland was close to the water. People became maritime lovers; they used this to their advantage. They traded mainly fish with olives and oils to get their food supply. They were also advanced in technology, with the creation of pulleys and levers and a pump for exiting water from ships. They focused on humanism and gods and goddesses for art and literature. Their government was democratic allowing people to have a say and run for office. One discovery that is still present was astronomy which modern society has based off of. Greece had many accomplishments that we still focus with to this day.
