Do you know why we have birthday candles? Or what beauty trend the Greeks were crazy about? From Athens to the Olympics, here are the craziest facts from ancient Greece! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5 - Greek Expulsion Ostracism is sometimes known as honourable exile and is one of the earliest known forms of absolute social shunning. Ostracism was a procedure done under ancient Greek Athenian democracy, which states that any citizen could be expelled from the city-state of Athens for ten full years. This was done to any citizen who was perceived to be a treat to the state or potential tyrant. Each year, the assembly would gather and if a citizen was placed on the chopping block for the penalty of Ostracism, a trial was held, if found guilty, the potential criminal was given ten days to leave the city, if they attempted to return, the penalty which awaited them was death. After ten years had passed this citizen would be allowed to return without stigma. There were a few times when the ostracism was declared unjust and the ostracised were allowed to return, but this was extremely rare. 4 - Strange Punishments and Bizarre Laws Ancient Greece may have been the birthplace of Democracy, but that doesn't mean that everything was just and orderly. Turns out they had quite a few unusual things going on in those high courts. The earliest written law code was written by a politician named Draco, which is where we get the word draconian, which is synonymous with severity. So in case you haven't guessed it yet, Draco's laws were exceptionally harsh. It is said that his laws were written in human blood rather than ink. Brutal. One such law is that if you were a man who was found guilty of adultery, the husband of the woman with whom you committed the crime had the right to sodomize you with radishes. Yikes. 3 - Forbidden Fame The temple of Artemis is now considered one of the seven wonders of the world, and in ancient times, this palace of prayer to the goddess of the moon had even more notoriety. One arsonist who went by the name of Herostratus wished to make a name for himself. How did he choose to gather fame and notoriety? He decided to do something so horrendous, that he would be written about in the history books for all eternity, and so he went about burning down the famed temple. It happened in the 4th century BC, Herostratus set fire to the temple and took off running. He was captured shortly thereafter. The fame seeker was then tortured on the rack where he was made to confess to his crime. He admitted to setting the fire in a desperate attempt to immortalize his name. Afterwards, the judges executed Herostratus and quickly erected a law which forbids any Greek citizen from speaking his name. But it seems their tactic didn't work, as we're still talking about this guy even today. 2 - Brazen Bull This device designed in Ancient Greece is meant to torture and execute criminals. The bull was made entirely from bronze, was hollow and had a door on one side. The bull was constructed to be the exact size and form of an actual bull. The condemned criminals would be locked inside this bizarre device, then, a fire would be lit beneath it, heating the bronze statue until the convict inside was roasted. This strange torturous lethal instrument of doom also included an acoustic apparatus, which converted screams into the sound of a bull. The inventor of the Brazen Bull was a man by the name of Perilaus, who hailed from the city of Athens. Legend has it, that Perilaus was asked by the Greek King who commissioned this device, into testing out the screaming audio conversion mechanism. As soon as Perilaus climbed inside the Brazen Bull, the King's men closed the door, locking the inventor inside his own creation. The fires were lit and poor Perilaus, was the first of many, many Greeks, to meet his end inside this twisted, sadistic execution device. 1 - Crazy Days at the Plays In ancient Greece, plays were considered a part of the culture, there were festivals designed to honor the prolific works and the writers and actors who worked in the theatre, were among some of the most highly regarded in all of the land. Yet sadly, only men were allowed to write plays and only males were given the right to act in them. If the actor was to play a woman character, he would don a large mask with a detailed face of a female painted on it, this was done so the audience members would know who in the play the male actor was attempting to portray. If a female was caught impersonating a man to play a role in a play, she would be faced with terrible consequences, including in some city-states, execution. These theatrical tellings were so popular in these ancient days, that theatre staff members often carried large sticks, because sometimes the humongous audience would get so excited or upset by the play they had just witnessed, that they would riot.

Ancient Greece History Channel Documentary (Engineering an Empire). Western Civilization has been influenced by many cultures, from Rome to America, but it was born in A,ncient Greece. Centuries before Julius Caesar conquered much of the known world, the Ancient Greeks were laying a foundation that has supported 3000 years of European history. Ancient Greece brings to mind philosophers like Aristotle and Socrates, Olympian gods, the beginnings of democracy, astonishing technological innovations, great conquering armies like those of Alexander the Great, and savage internecine battles, none more famous than the duel to the death between Athens and Sparta. Greece is a story about the human drive to explore, to wonder, to be curious. Their ruins now communicate that drive. Over 1000 years, this strong and charismatic people strategically harnessed the materials and people around them to create the most advanced technological feats the world had ever seen. From The Tunnel of Samos: a mile-long aqueduct dug through a large mountain of solid limestone, to Agamemnon's Tomb, to The Parthenon, this episode will examine the architecture and infrastructure engineered by the Greek Empire. Engineering an Empire is an excellent series and definitely worth watching. ...................................................................... The legacy of the Greeks is under assault today thus deserves defence and celebration for the simple reason that much of what we are is the result of that brilliant examination of human life first begun by the Greeks; as Jacob Burckhardt says, "We see with the eyes of the Greeks and use their phrases when we speak." We must listen to the Greeks not because they will give us answers, but because they first identified the questions and problems, and they knew too where the answers must come from: the minds of free human beings who have control over their own lives. And this, finally, is the greatest good we have received from the Greeks: the gift of freedom. The Greeks are accused by some of stealing their achievements from Egyptians and Babylonians, of oppressing their wives and daughters, and of hypocritically speculating about freedom while holding slaves. And that is the greatest irony: the spirit of criticism that among so many academics has fossilized into a pose has its origins nowhere but among the Greeks, who were the first to question critically everything from the gods to political power to their very selves, the first to live what Socrates called “the examined life”. As Victor Hanson and John Heath write, “Not one of the multicultural classicists really wishes to live under indigenous pre–Colombian ideas of government, Arabic protocols for female behaviour, Chinese canons of medical ethics, Islamic traditions of church and state, African approaches to science, Japanese ideas of race, Indian social castes, or Native American notions of private property.” Classic Greek culture has come under attack precisely because its achievement, extended into history, is what defines the West and makes it distinct. What is valuable in the much abused Western tradition, hence the examined life, the pursuit of truth, the dialogue about the place of the individual in the larger group, comes from the Greeks. Humanism, reason, the pursuit of knowledge and the arts, moderation and civic responsibility, all come from the Greeks. The failings of the Greeks, including not living up to their own ideals, are the failings of humanity everywhere. But their ideals, still alive today, led to the recognition of a common humanity that was more important than gender or social status, more profound than local or tribal affiliations. Without this insight, slavery might never have been abolished in the West, women might never have been granted equality, and the liberal notion that all humans possess innate rights merely as a virtue of being human would never have existed. (Bruce Thornton, “Greek Ways: How the Greeks Created Western Civilization”, 2002, "Defending the Greeks", Private Papers, 2005, Victor Davis Hanson, John Heath, “Who Killed Homer: The Demise of Classical Education and the Recovery of Greek Wisdom, 1998”)
