Following the instructions for doing timelines we saw in the previous unit (and you have in the main page of your course), you have to do a timeline of Ancient Greece including the following dates:
800 – 776 – 499 – 480 – 431 – 404 – – 359* – 336 – 323 – 146 – 100 BCE.
Since it just comprises from 800 to 100 BCE, it’s only 700 years. Therefore, use about 4 cms per century when doing the timeline in your notebook.
Use one colour for the Archaic Period, another for the Classical Period, and another for the Hellenistic period. In addition to that, add two or 3 main characteristics of each of the periods.
Specify what happened in the dates whenever it is possible.
* Added later. Sorry about that.
Here you have a couple of diagrams about the political systems of the two most important poleis in Classical Greece: Athenian democracy and Spartan oligarchy.
Copy and complete them in your notebook.
