Greek and Roman day is Thursday, October 19th!!!
The ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome have influenced Western society more profoundly than perhaps any other cultures in world history. The political institutions of these two great civilizations—including the early forms of democracy established in Athens and several other city-states of ancient Greece and the judicious power sharing articulated in the Roman republic—have been incorporated with great success into many subsequent societies.
The many remarkable rulers who led these two cultures or fought them—including Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Julius Caesar, and Caesar Augustus—are part of a shared world history. We will trace that history, and follow its influence on our political institutions and culture today.
