TRADE

The imports and exports that are natural resources are copper, ivory, bronze, gems, oil, tin, gold, wood, and herbs. Most of these are imported and exported to the East. Each person had a trading partner. The items they traded the most are olive trees, grapes, used canals, jewels, gold, and pottery. They established trade routes. They expanded their cultures, and ideas when they traded.

  

 

CLIMATE

The Summers in Greece were hot and dry. The average temperature was between 75 degrees F or 24 degrees C. The Winters in Greece were wet and damp. The lowest temperature was 4 degrees C. They didn't have to do much work to get used to the climate because the clodest temperature was usually 40 degrees C, and the hottest temperature was 4 degrees C.  To adapt to the weather they would make warmer clothes. They would farm in certain seasons. They would trade in different areas in different seasons.

 

 

 

HOUSING

The houses had about 2-3 rooms. They were built around an open air courtyard. They were made out of stone, wood, or clay. The big homes have a kitchen, bathroom, a men's dining room, and a womens sitting area. They had to make frequent repairs.They built courtyards for rich homes. The houses were also made out of bricks. From what we see Greek must of loved nature.

Archeological Research

In the following paragraph I will explain why the research is true on my civilization is true. It's true ,because there are many Greek artifacts and large man made objects that show Greek living. In Greece there have been many statues and temples made that aren't exisiting any more today.  I can prove that, because there are many Greek artifacts and myths that show proof. Even though a myth is traditional or legendary story that isn't real parts of it can have factual places and landmarks. Some existing temples have pictures/symbols that prove their history. In conclusion our answers on Greek landforms, trade, housing, agriculture, and river facts are 99% true, because of the artifacts and man-made objects being found near Greece today. Also some of the archeologist work in the oceans. They also found pottery or created pottery. The Greek people collected jewels. Miners hunt for gold, because the Greek people had a lot of gold. When there are ship wrecks there are items. The items that are found in the ship can impact the future. Artifacts from before the 6th millenium have benn found and put in the musems.
