Greek Blog #5

Top 5 Things the Greeks contributed to modern society

-History (Herodotus, father of history)

-Underground aqueducts

I chose the top 5 that I did seeing as we still use them today and they relate to us in many different ways. For example things such as philosophy are a part of schools and the way we learn, while democracy is something we live with in our government system. Although Herodotus is not part of our day to day lives, history is, and we create history everyday. The olympics are not neccasarily a contribution, however it is still an impact on us, and is something everyone takes time to watch or read about. Lastly I picked aqueducts because.. we need water..
