The Greeks

This is a complete reworking of our previous Greek show.

We look at the Greek influence around the Mediterranean and Aegean seas 4000 yrs ago.

We look at why the Greeks were the first major civilisation to take up astronomy as a science, and how they used this knowledge.

We look at the Greeks use of Geometry and how the use of a simple right angle helped them tunnel through mountains.

We look at the Amphitheatre and how the Greeks learnt about simple acoustics and used this knowledge to build 15000 seater theatres.    

We also see how the Greeks ran Egypt for many years, did you know Cleopatra was Greek?
