Ancient Greece was a collection of island and city states governed independently by a variety of rulers - some had kings, some a governing council.


The story of "Perseus & Medusa" takes place on the island of Seriphos.


The city-states were formed when villages began to group together for mutual protection.

Although the city-states spoke the same languages and worshipped the same gods they considered themselves to be entirely independent.


Nobody would describe themselves as 'Greek', rather 'Athenian' or 'Cretan'.


The city-states would sometimes co-operate and sometimes war with each other!

Did you know that there was an Ancient Greek kingdom called Argos!
