If you are a child living in Greece and you are learning the history of your country, you have a lot to learn: Prehistoric Greece (Neolithic, Bronze Age, and Early Iron Age); Ancient Greece (Archaic Greece, Classical Greece, Hellonistic Greece, Roman Greece); Byzantine Empire (Economic prosperity, Artistic revival, Fourth Crusade); Ottoman rule; Modern Greek State (World War I and the Greco-Turkish War, World War II, Greed Civil War, Postwar recovery and military junta, Restoration of democracy, Economic Crisis). Wow. That’s a lot of history. But that is part of the charms of Greece: the relics of history mixing beautifully with the appeal of the modern city.
