National Geographic honours Greece, who they say “Changed The World” (VIDEO)
National Geographic publications has honoured Greece by releasing a new documentary series saying, “Greeks changed the World!”
The series, which has been released worldwide and titled ‘The Greeks’ highlights how much one nation has given to the rest of the globe.“On the culture that brought us democracy, the Olympics, Socrates, and Alexander the Great, this lavishly illustrated reference about ancient Greece presents the amazing history through gripping stories;
maps of major battles and the rise and fall of the empire; the powerful legacy left by ancient Greece for the modern world; and the new discoveries shedding light on these ancient people that are still so much with us,” says National Geographic.“Even today, Greek art and architecture dominate our cities; modern military strategists still study and employ Hellenic war tactics;
Greek poetry, plays, and philosophy are widely read; and science, mathematics, medicine, and astronomy all build on the fundamentals of early Greek thinking.”
In the landmark event series The Greeks, historians and archaeologists, actors and athletes, scientists and artists launch a ground-breaking exploration into the ancient Greeks’ journey — not just to better understand their past, but to discover how their legacy illuminates our present and will shape our future.
“The story of the Greeks is the story of us,” says National Geographic.
