  10. 10.  Greeks live in city states called Poleis.  Every Polis had its own goverment, economy, laws, army, currency, way of life…  Poleis were formed by an urban centre and then farming lands around.  There were more than 200 poleis. Examples: Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thebes, Troy, Myletus…
  11. 11.  Between the 8th and 6th centuries there was a crisis in Greece: population increased and their land was not very fertile so there was not enough food for everybody.  In consequence, many Greeks migrated and founded colonies. First in Italy, France, Spain, Libya… and then around the Black Sea.  Because of colonies Greek culture spread: use of iron, money, art… and they mixed with other peoples.

The government of all the poleis was an oligarchy: power belongs to the aristoi (aristocracy), a few privileged men. In the classical period Athens established a new political system: democracy.
  15. 15.  In Sparta, like in other poleis, power was based on oligarchy (oligarquía): a small group of people controlled the politics.  There were two important families so there were two kings.

  18. 18.  In the 7th century BC, some people in the polis protested against the abuse of power by the governing aristocracy.  As a result, SOLON (638-558 BC) gave political power to the Citizens’ Assembly or Ekklesia.  Later, CLEISTHENES (Clístenes) introduced some more reforms and democracy was created (508 BC).
  19. 19. Athenian democracy was based on three institutions. However, to participate in them you had to be a citizen: men over 18 from Athenian parents (it means only 40,000 people over a population of 500,000).
