CRAZIEST Things the Ancient Greeks Did !!
 
10:41
You Won't BELIEVE the absolutely insane facts about Ancient Greece; and the things the ancient Greeks did ! Here are Craziest Things the Ancient Greeks Did. 3. Sneeze Your Problems Away Apparently they thought if a woman squatted and sneezed this would do the trick. It’s unclear exactly why they thought this but they felt that it was important to get rid of unwanted fluids in the body, such as snot. In modern times, we know this is completely ridiculous but the respected greek physician soranus thought this was a better alternative than crocodile dung. For anyone thinking about actually trying this, you probably need to see a different kind of docter. 2. Horsing Around You might be familiar with the legends of the Trojan horse mentioned in Homer’s Iliad and even the film with Brad Pitt, titled Troy. However this city truly does exist and it’s located in Northwestern Turkey. The Greeks played one of the best pranks history and this was not just a prank bro but one of the best cases of deception in military history. Some of the remains of this legendary setting are still intact such as this portion of the walls. However due to it’s strategic location, it’s also been urbanized by other civilizations such as the romans. This remarkable city was founded in 3,500 BC and abandoned in 500 AD. In Greek mythology, a woman named Helen of Troy lived here, who was rumored to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The war broke out when Helen, who was married to the King of Sparta, was abducted by the Prince of Troy, named Paris. After a long 10 year siege of the city of Troy, the Greek army came up with a plot to get inside the walls by constructing a large wooden horse as a peace offering. Little did the trojans know that inside the horse were greek soldiers! So be careful of Greeks offering gifts! Zombie Preperation How long back did people people actually believe in zombies? We’ll it turns out, much longer ago than you think. Due to this discovery, it’s believed that even the Ancient Greeks feared zombies rising from the dead and possibly feasting on brains, or whatever they would feast one! Archaeologists claim to have unearthed a tomb from an ancient Greek colony in Sicily near by Kamarina, that used rocks to pin people to their tombs. Greeks often exhibited necrophobia, or fear of the dead, especially that one day to could come back alive and prey on unsuspecting victims. They took this to a whole nother level This illustration of what’s known as tomb 653, shows how the body was weighed down with a large piece of amphora which is placed on his face and legs. Another skeleton was found show as much as 5 rocks placed on top of the body in order to keep it rising once again.

This February, the Greek government officially recognized the Hellenic Ethnic Religion as an official religion. But, followers of this religion face other hurdles. Greece is home to the first official temple of Hellenismos, b were both built by one man, Aristoteles Kakogeorgiou. Hellenic celebrations take place in these temples or in indoor locations because they cannot occur on ancient Greek sites because it is prohibited by the government. Many they want to be treated fairly by the government so they can coexist.

4 Ancient Greek Beauty Secrets To Reverse Aging Naturally! Greek Beauty Rituals
 
05:23
Greece, the land of Aphrodite the goddess of beauty, and Helen of Troy who launched a thousand ships, has a legacy of beauty. Greece is considered the birthplace of the arts and the home of classic beauty. The beauty of the Greek women has always been considered a gift from the gods, which meant health, physical and mental strength, luck and outer beauty. Greek women are known all over the world for the beauty that they hold. They believe in practicing the age old beauty remedies so that their skin can glow with radiance. It’s always fascinating to learn about the ways that people of the past used to enhance their beauty. They had no chemical loaded serums during those time and they could only use the natural resources that they had in hand. Now lets take a look at how Greek women kept themselves looking good since ancient time! Olive oil It is said that the olive trees first grew in Ancient Greece. An olive tree is believed to be a sacred tree because it is said that The Goddess ‘Athena’ had gifted an olive tree to the Athenians which grew next to the Acropolis, presumably in honor of the city state’s devotion to her. Olive oil has been a huge part of life in Greece since ancient time. Olive tree symbolizes wealth, health, beauty, wisdom and abundance during ancient time in Greece. Homer refers to olive oil as ‘liquid gold". Ancient Greek women were the first to use olive oil as a moisturizer. Olive oil helps to revitalize dry skin and contributes to the cell renewal process. Regular application of olive oil on the skin will not only reduce wrinkles but also moisturizes the skin and removes dead skin cells. Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and exacerbate current skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin and provides a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple. Try using organic olive oil at night as a substitute for your chemical-loaded regular moisturizer. 2. Greek yogurt Greek yogurt is heavily strained to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a tangy, creamy product. Greek yogurt has double the protein, half the carbs and half the sodium of the regular variety yogurt. Chock full of protein, calcium, vitamin D, and probiotics, there’s no doubt Greek yogurt provides delicious benefits for your insides, but its skincare benefits are pretty impressive too. It contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 3. Rose bath Rose petals sprinkled in a bath are the image of luxury and self love. Taking rose bath at least once a week can help to even out skin tone and also tighten pores. The antioxidant properties of rose water help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues. It also helps aging skin, keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. 4. Clay to draw out toxins The ancient Greeks knew all about the benefits of clay masks, long before modern cosmetics companies caught on to the idea. Clay is a versatile natural substance that does wonders for skin. When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these out from your body. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Like us on Facebook: https://goo.gl/eBW5tz Please subscribe my channel: https://goo.gl/1ROjWP Please click the bell button to get notified about my videos.

Most CRAZY Things Ancient Greeks Did!

Milo of Croton The Ancient Greeks invented progressive strength training. Milo of Croton won six Olympiads in the wrestling events. He also won multiple times at the Pythian Games, Isthmian Games, and Nemean Games. Milo loved to show off his strength and dexterity. According to sources, his favorite trick was to hold a pomegranate and have people try to take it from him. No one was strong enough to take the pomegranate from him and he also managed to not damage the fruit. How did he gain such prodigious strength and skill? According to popular legend, Milo noticed a newborn calf near his home. He decided to lift the animal and carry it on his shoulders. He returned the next day and did it again. He did it every day until the calf grew to a four-year-old bull. Thus was progressive strength training born. Here’s another wild athlete story. Theagenes of Thasos was a formidable fighter who won over 1,300 bouts over his two decade career. He even won a crown for long-distance running in the city of Argos. As a boxer, he was never defeated. According to legend, years after his, a vandal tried to deface a statue honoring Theagenes. The bronze statue broke in half and crushed the would-be criminal. 9. Birth Control by Sneezing The Ancient Greeks had various forms of birth control. Some forms involved certain herbs and plants, which worked very well. However, one physician, Soranus, advised women to do something a little odd. After intercourse, women were told to squat and sneeze to avoid becoming pregnant. He also suggested jumping up and down to dislodge the sperm. If that’s not crazy enough for you, the website Snopes.com was still debunking the “jump up and down” method of birth control as recently as 2007. 8. Brazen Bull In the 6th century BC, a brass worker named Perilaus of Athens created a large, hollow bull made of brass and gave it to a ruler named Phalaris. A door on the side of the bull allowed a man to climb into the sculpture. Once the door was closed, a fire could be lit from underneath and slowly roast the person. But it doesn’t end there. In the head of the bull was a series of stops and pipes that transformed the screams of the person into “the tenderest, most pathetic, most melodious of bellowings”. Phalaris was far from impressed. So disgusted by the piece, he asked Perilaus to climb into the bull and demonstrate the capabilities of the pipes. Once inside, Phalaris shut the door and ordered a fire lit beneath the bull. He reportedly said, “Receive the due reward of your wondrous art; let the music-maker be the first to play.” Before Perilaus, they removed him from the bull and threw him off a cliff. Despite Phalaris’s disgust, the brazen bull became the most common form of in Ancient Greece. Here’s an extra fact. Phalaris was a tyrant ruling in Acragas in Sicily from 570 BC to 554. He’s known for several building projects but he did have a cruel streak that made him the proverbial “evil tyrant”. According to legend, after he was overthrown by a general, the new ruler ordered Phalaris to roast inside the brazen bull. 7. Victorious Corpse Did you know? Cheating was a huge problem in Ancient Greek sport, just like today. Most of the time, it was the usual bribery or foul moves during games. Here is a picture of a scene on a kylix depicting two pankratists fighting. One of them is trying to gouge out the eye of his opponent while simultaneously biting. The umpire is preparing to strike the fighter for the foul. Some fighters would find an easier way and try to curse or hex their opponents using “curse tablets” to make them lose. An event held during the Olympic Games was the pankration, which was a mixed martial arts style that blended boxing and wrestling. Most famous of the pankratists was Arrhachion. During the 54th Olympiad in 564 BC, Arrhachion entered the pankration to defend his championship. However, his opponent got the better of him and put Arrachion into a chokehold. It is said Arrhachion’s trainer shouted, “What a fine funeral if you do not submit at Olympia”. Arrhachion responded by twisting and kicking his opponent’s foot and dislocating it. The pain forced his opponent to surrender. Unfortunately, the move broke Arrhachion’s neck. Despite that, the judges named Arrhachion the victor. he successfully defended his title. His fame spread as people held him up as the athletic ideal. Geographer Pausanias mentioned a statue immortalizing Arrhachion during his description of Phigalia

Psychedelics in ancient Rome and Greece - Chiara Baldini
 
21:57
Chiara Baldini is an independent researcher from Florence (Italy), passionate about exploring how consciousness altering practices were used in the course of European history, particularly in ancient Greece and Rome. The practice of altered states of consciousness has accompanied and inspired the evolution of human culture since time immemorial. In Europe for thousands of years the ingestion of psychotropic plants, trance dancing to the sound of the frame drum and ritual sexuality were the preferred means to enter into a state of deep connection with nature and channel its wisdom. In this presentation we will explore how these primordial shamanic practices survived into the historical period to spread and flourish in the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. In particular we will look at how the rituals of Dionysus offered the possibility to construct alternative gender roles and the reactions of the ruling classes both in ancient Greece and Rome.

Homosexuality in Ancient Greece : The Truth

They didn't have the right to vote but there was no such thing as antihomosexual law against them (as many fascists slash bigots may try to convince you). Etymology of a word is useless, unless we find the use of the word in ancient scripts. This leads to the meaning: lecher, lustful Kinaidoi were the adult men who, after the 'effect' of the pederasty, didn't not have any curiosity for vaginas. It was something acceptable and tolerant. As told before, homosexuality in various forms was something normal in ancient world. The Bisexual Behavior was the accepted one for an adult man. The only thing that ancients greeks prohibited was the male prostitution (that's what Timarhus did). They believed that if a man can sell his body so easily for money, he can also sell his country, so that man would lose his rights as Athenian citizen. Also there wasn't such thing as marriage between 2 men, who couldn't live under the same roof. Marriage was the union of a man and a woman with ultimate goal to create family. Other than that, no form of sexual activity was considered unnatural, or perversion, or abnormal. :) Spencer, Collins: Histoire de l'homosexualité, Agora Pocket, Paris 1995 Dover, Kenneth J.: Greek Homosexuality, Vintage Books, 1978 Thornton, Bruce S.: Eros: the Myth of Ancient Greek Sexuality, Westview Press, 1997 Calame, Claude: L'Éros dans la Grèce antique, Belin, Paris 2000 Cantarella, Eva: Bisexuality in the Ancient World, 2nd edition, Yale University Press, 2002 Ludwig, Paul Walter: Eros and Polis: Desire and Community in Greek Political Theory.

CRAZY Stuff The Ancient Greeks Did!
 
11:36
Mind-blowing crazy things the Ancient Greeks did! The most shocking facts about the mythology, medical practices, technology, beauty treatments and bathroom habits of Ancient Greek Civilization! From what they used for toilet paper to their unusual workout clothes, we look at strange and bizarre facts about the Ancient Greeks #13. “Apple of My Eye”- There have been some really strange ways that people have expressed their love for each other, but the Greeks nailed it with the weird tradition of throwing an apple at the person you wanted to marry. If the person you wanted to marry caught the apple, this would mean they accepted your proposal. The sources don’t say how hard they threw the apple, but it is fun to picture an ancient greek chucking the apple as hard as they can, giving the phrase ‘think fast’ new meaning. This tradition stems from the belief that apples were sacred to the goddess Aphrodite as she was awarded a golden one when Paris of Troy chose her as the most beautiful of all goddesses--which he only did because she promised him Helen of Troy, inevitably starting the Trojan War. Because Aphrodite was the goddess of love, apples became a large part of Greek romantic tradition. Aside from proposals, it was common for newlyweds to eat apples on their wedding night and people gave apples to each other as an ancient type of valentine. #12. “Political Exile”-In a practice which we wish was still in use today, if the ancient Athenians thought anyone, especially politicians, were doing a terrible job or were considered politically or socially dangerous to the city, the citizens were allowed to take a vote on whether or not the person should be exiled. This practice was known as ostrakismos [aw-strah-kiz-mos] which is the origin of the English word ostracise. If the person received 6,000 votes they would be banished from Athens for ten years, and if they attempted to return they would be executed. However, on some occasions after a few years they could be voted back, which happened a few times when the city needed the person. #10. “Tax Shaming”- In order for a democracy to function properly you would think that strict rules on taxation would have to be enforced so that the rich wouldn’t take advantage, but in ancient Greece this was far from the case. The Greeks practiced self-policing in many ways and the idea of paying your own fair share for the greater good was no different. Yes, there were rich and there were poor, but the Greeks had an ingrained understanding that in order for society as a whole to improve everyone had to make sacrifices. For those blessed by the gods with wealth it was only natural to give back. For the most part, in modern society this is something that must be forced on people via law, otherwise, there would never be funding for public works or necessary governmental institutions. To get the rich to pony up--all the Greeks had to do was to accuse someone of being frugal in their donations. This was a rare occurrence, because in ancient Greece, the way to really brag about one’s wealth was to give the biggest donation. It was also embedded in their culture that most riches were accrued via luck, so there was no inherent shame in being financially less fortunate.

The Greeks Who Pray to Zeus: VICE INTL (Greece)

Even though Greece is a predominately Christian Orthodox country, there are some people in this country who still believe in the 12 Gods of mount Olympus, deriving from Greek Mythology. According to unofficial sources they amount to a couple of hundreds and present themselves as members of the unofficial so-called "Greek Religion". This is a mixture of beliefs that combine paganism, the idea of spiritual connection with nature and a kind of fixation to the Ancient Greek ideals. Over the past decades they have founded various different groups, the oldest and most popular among them being the "Greek Naionals High Commissioned Council (GNHCC) - Υπατο Συμβούλιο Ελλήνων Εθνικών," founded 30 years ago.

BIZARRE Things The Ancient Egyptians Did!
 
10:49
The most crazy facts about Ancient Egyptian civilization! From odd medicines to strange rituals, here are some of the most fascinating, disgusting and just plain weird things about Ancient Egypt! “Got Your Nose”- There have been many bizarre punishment for criminals throughout history but the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Aktisanes takes the cake with his sentences. During his reign over the glorious ancient empire any criminal convicted of a crime would have their nose cut off and subsequently be banished to the aptly named city of Rhinocolura which translates to “city of noseless people”. Though this may sound brutal it was actually considered a very lenient punishment for this time period. The criminal having their nose removed was probably the least horrible part of the sentence as well because Rhinocolura was a terrible place to live. Not only was it full of criminals but the inhabitants had to build their homes and facilities using leftover rubble from other settlements and the water that they used for drinking and bathing was extremely polluted. “One Hundred Heirs”-- In ancient times polygamy and having dozens of children was the thing to do, especially among royalty. One of the most unbelievable examples of this was the family of one of the most famous pharaohs, Ramses II. Also known as Ozymandias and Ramses the Great, Ramses the II is considered to be the most powerful pharaoh who ever lived and is the ruler that is most commonly put forward as a candidate as the pharaoh in the Bible’s story of Moses. Ramses left a lasting legacy on Egyptian culture and not just because of his politics and the public works that were constructed during his time but because of his huge impact on Egypt’s gene pool. It is believed that Ramses had at least 8 wives and more just over 100 confirmed children. Though he outlived most of his issue, there is no doubt that this insane amount of children assured that his genetic legacy lived on for centuries. Ramses had so many children that he is ranked number 8 on the list of historical men with the most children. “Job For Everyone”- The ancient Egyptians were ingenuitive in several aspects of life and one of the most ingenious aspects of their culture was a way that they found jobs for those who could be considered outcasts. Instead of ridiculing or casting out those with dwarfism or gigantism they used these people’s ability to stand out from a crowd to their advantage. In order to prevent that precious gold wouldn’t be stolen by the workers assigned to the tasks of collecting, guarding and using it, they used people with dwarfism and gigantism as gold workers. This not only gave these people jobs in a world that mainly valued physical labor, but it assured that if they tried to steal they wouldn’t be able to hide in groups of people. Adside from easily finding jobs in Egypt’s gold industry, dwarfs and pygmies were revered as people that had special gifts endowed on them from the gods, so they were treated favorably in other aspects of life.

Thespis, Athens, and The Origins of Greek Drama: Crash Course Theater #2

This week on Crash Course Theater, Mike is acting like theater started in Greece. Well, for the western theater, this is true. The earliest recorded drama in the west arose in Athen, and these early plays grew out or religious ritual. Namely, they evolved from the worship of Dionysus, god of wine, fertility, and RITUAL MADNESS. That's right. I said RITUAL MADNESS Crash Course is on Patreon!

Greek Mythology  God and Goddesses   Documentary
 
01:28:59
Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece and is part of religion in modern Greece and around the world, known as Hellenismos. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.[1] Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and mythological creatures. These accounts initially were disseminated in an oral-poetic tradition; today the Greek myths are known primarily from Greek literature. The oldest known Greek literary sources, Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, focus on events surrounding the Trojan War. Two poems by Homer's near contemporary Hesiod, the Theogony and the Works and Days, contain accounts of the genesis of the world, the succession of divine rulers, the succession of human ages, the origin of human woes, and the origin of sacrificial practices. Myths are also preserved in the Homeric Hymns, in fragments of epic poems of the Epic Cycle, in lyric poems, in the works of the tragedians of the fifth century BC, in writings of scholars and poets of the Hellenistic Age, and in texts from the time of the Roman Empire by writers such as Plutarch and Pausanias. Archaeological findings provide a principal source of detail about Greek mythology, with gods and heroes featured prominently in the decoration of many artifacts. Geometric designs on pottery of the eighth century BC depict scenes from the Trojan cycle as well as the adventures of Heracles. In the succeeding Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, Homeric and various other mythological scenes appear, supplementing the existing literary evidence.[2] Greek mythology has had an extensive influence on the culture, arts, and literature of Western civilization and remains part of Western heritage and language. Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in the themes.

Pontians perform Ancient Greek Ritual dance, Momogeri
 
07:31
http;//CosmosPhilly.com. Upper Darby, PA - Greek Festival fans who attended St. Demetrios festival, were treated to a special performance by the "Akritai" Dance troupe a few weeks ago. While most dance troupes featured regional folk dances from throughout Greece, the Akritai introduced something new, that from the past. They took the attendee on a trip back to the ancient world, to the land of Pontos, and blended theatre and dance. Momogeri is an old genuine form of Greek traditional folk theater, the most ancient ritual revived today in Greece. The Greeks of Pontos preserved the custom of Momogeri for centuries. After the Asia Minor catastrophe of 1922 and the exchange of populations, they brought with them the ancient custom to Greece, in addition to their language, dancing, folk music, and other customs. The name Momogeri derives from the composition of the words "momos" and "geros." Momos was the God of Laughter and Satyr in ancient times. He was the personification of censure and condemnation. The word "geros" refers to the old connoisseurs of mystical ceremonies, the "priests" of the time. There are many people involved in this custom and they are divided in two groups, theater and dance. The theater element involves people dressed as: two brides, an old man with his wife, a gypsy with a bear, a Doctor, a Policeman, and the Devil. The dance element consists of a Leader and twelve dancers. The actors consciously seek to entertain, bring happiness and of course to be treated by the hosts of the houses they visit. This custom is a way to welcome the New Year, but most of all it is a way to entertain. It is a Greek traditional street theater of the people who aim to spread cheer, joy and laughter.

Ancient Greek Rites: Apollo

Some things to remember. When using oil, remember that if you're concerned that it may discolor your statue, don't use it. I would recommend finding another way to anoint it that is in line with ancient Greek practices and worldviews, or that do not contradict them. Lastly, when the ritual is over, remember that there is always good time for meditation on Apollon to receive His guidance and presence. The sweetness of the incense should help you with relaxation.

Greece is considered the birthplace of the arts and the home of classic beauty. The beauty of the Greek women has always been considered a gift from the gods, which meant health, physical and mental strength, luck and outer beauty. They had no drug stores or big cosmetic manufactures back then, so they used the natural resources that they had to hand. What’s really interesting is that, although people like the ancient Greeks may not have had the modern cosmetics manufacturing methods that we have, much of what they used in their beauty treatments is still in use today. Here are ten of the beauty secrets of the ancient Greeks, some of which you will no doubt recognise. 💋 G+:https://goo.gl/lQsL5w Twitter: https://goo.gl/lQDTlX 💋Pinterest: https://goo.gl/EZLI5T ► If there are any copyright issues with any videos posted here i will remove them. ► Thanks for watching! 💋Please watch: 💋Health :https://goo.gl/x3JCp9

The Secret Eleusinian Mystery Cult!
 
05:22
The Secret Eleusinian Mystery Ancient Greek Cult! Hi guys,today we bring you a new video over a very interesting topic: The Eleusinian Mysteries or Demeters cult. The Eleusinian Mysteries (Greek: Ἐλευσίνια Μυστήρια) were initiations held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at Eleusis in ancient Greece. They are the "most famous of the secret religious rites of ancient Greece". It is thought that their basis was an old agrarian cult which probably goes back to the Mycenean period (c. 1600 – 1100 BC) and it is believed that the cult of Demeter was established in 1500 BC. The mysteries represented the myth of the abduction of Persephone from her mother Demeter by the king of the underworld Hades, in a cycle with three phases, the "descent" (loss), the "search" and the "ascent", with the main theme the "ascent" of Persephone and the reunion with her mother. It was a major festival during the Hellenic era, and later spread to Rome.] The name of the town, Eleusís, seems to be Pre-Greek and it is probably a counterpart with Elysium and the goddess Eileithyia. This secret cult had many enigmas,such as their leader,nobody never knew who founded the cult nor if someone was ever leading or creating the rules. The cult was special,as it allowed anybody to enter and be part of the cult and learn the knowledge of the priests... It is also believed that this religion/cult was one of the first to use psychodelic substances in order to reach the point ofenlightment. I hope you guys enjoy the video! Please like and Subscribe!

The Spartans - Part 1 of 3 (Ancient Greece Documentary) | Timeline
 
48:08
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK The Spartans chronicles the rise and fall of one of the most extreme civilisations the world has ever witnessed. A civilization that was founded on discipline, sacrifice and frugality where the onus was on the collective and the goal was to create the perfect state, and the perfect warrior. Classical historian Bettany Hughes reveals the secrets and complexities of everyday Spartan life: homosexuality was compulsory, money was outlawed, equality was enforced, weak boys were put to death and women enjoyed a level of social and sexual freedom that was unheard of in the ancient world. It was a nation of fearsome fighters where a glorious death was treasured. This can be aptly demonstrated by the kamikaze last stand at Thermopylae, where King Leonidas and his warriors fought with swords, hands and teeth to fend off the Persian invaders and show the rest of the world what it meant to be Spartan. Sparta was ruthlessly militaristic and founded on a belief that good order and justice protected against chaos and lawlessness. Policed by secret spies the society was supported by a nation of slaves so all Spartan men had to do was fight. Boys were indoctrinated with the Spartan code of death and glory, separated from their mothers at seven and left to fend for themselves. It led Aristotle to comment that Sparta "turned its children into animals." The training continued throughout adolescence, the most able boys being let loose as death squads preying on the slave population to keep them quiet. It cannot lay claim to the philosophers or artists of Athens but Sparta contributed as much to western civilisation as Athens did. Indeed it was Sparta, not Athens that was the first city to offer citizenship to its inhabitants. To many, the ideals formed 2500 years ago in Sparta can be seen as a fore-runner of modern-day totalitarianism. By setting out to create a perfect society protected by perfect warriors, Sparta made an enemy of change. A collapsing birth-rate, too few warriors, rebellious slaves, and outdated attitudes to weaponry and warfare combined to sow the seeds of Sparta's destruction. Eventually the once great warrior state was reduced to a stop for Roman tourists who came to view the bizarre sado-masochistic rituals. Documentary first broadcast in 2003. Content licensed from DRG.
