  • Geography

    Ancient Greece consisted mainly of a

    mountainous peninsula jutting out into

    the Mediterranean

     It also included

    about 2,000

    islands in the

    Aegean and

    Ionian seas

  • Geography

     The sea shaped Greek civilization just as

    rivers shaped the ancient civilizations

     Greeks rarely had to travel more than 85

    miles to reach the coastline.

     The Aegean Sea, the Ionian Sea, and the

    neighboring Black Sea were important

    transportation routes for the Greek

    people.

  • Trade

    As the Greeks became skilled

    sailors, sea travel connected

    Greece with other societies.

    Sea travel and trade were also

    important because Greece

    lacked natural resources, such

    as timber, precious metals, and

    usable farmland.
