CRAZIEST Things the Ancient Greeks Did !!
 
10:41
You Won't BELIEVE the absolutely insane facts about Ancient Greece; and the things the ancient Greeks did ! Here are Craziest Things the Ancient Greeks Did. 3. Sneeze Your Problems Away Apparently they thought if a woman squatted and sneezed this would do the trick. It’s unclear exactly why they thought this but they felt that it was important to get rid of unwanted fluids in the body, such as snot. In modern times, we know this is completely ridiculous but the respected greek physician soranus thought this was a better alternative than crocodile dung. For anyone thinking about actually trying this, you probably need to see a different kind of docter. 2. Horsing Around You might be familiar with the legends of the Trojan horse mentioned in Homer’s Iliad and even the film with Brad Pitt, titled Troy. However this city truly does exist and it’s located in Northwestern Turkey. The Greeks played one of the best pranks history and this was not just a prank bro but one of the best cases of deception in military history. Some of the remains of this legendary setting are still intact such as this portion of the walls. However due to it’s strategic location, it’s also been urbanized by other civilizations such as the romans. This remarkable city was founded in 3,500 BC and abandoned in 500 AD. In Greek mythology, a woman named Helen of Troy lived here, who was rumored to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The war broke out when Helen, who was married to the King of Sparta, was abducted by the Prince of Troy, named Paris. After a long 10 year siege of the city of Troy, the Greek army came up with a plot to get inside the walls by constructing a large wooden horse as a peace offering. Little did the trojans know that inside the horse were greek soldiers! So be careful of Greeks offering gifts! Zombie Preperation How long back did people people actually believe in zombies? We’ll it turns out, much longer ago than you think. Due to this discovery, it’s believed that even the Ancient Greeks feared zombies rising from the dead and possibly feasting on brains, or whatever they would feast one! Archaeologists claim to have unearthed a tomb from an ancient Greek colony in Sicily near by Kamarina, that used rocks to pin people to their tombs. Greeks often exhibited necrophobia, or fear of the dead, especially that one day to could come back alive and prey on unsuspecting victims. They took this to a whole nother level This illustration of what’s known as tomb 653, shows how the body was weighed down with a large piece of amphora which is placed on his face and legs. Another skeleton was found show as much as 5 rocks placed on top of the body in order to keep it rising once again.

The Hellenic Ethnic Religion Explained
 
06:41
This February, the Greek government officially recognized the Hellenic Ethnic Religion as an official religion. But, followers of this religion face other hurdles. Greece is home to the first official temple of Hellenismos, b were both built by one man, Aristoteles Kakogeorgiou. Hellenic celebrations take place in these temples or in indoor locations because they cannot occur on ancient Greek sites because it is prohibited by the government. Many they want to be treated fairly by the government so they can coexist.

Milo of Croton The Ancient Greeks invented progressive strength training. Milo of Croton won six Olympiads in the wrestling events. He also won multiple times at the Pythian Games, Isthmian Games, and Nemean Games. Milo loved to show off his strength and dexterity. According to sources, his favorite trick was to hold a pomegranate and have people try to take it from him. No one was strong enough to take the pomegranate from him and he also managed to not damage the fruit. How did he gain such prodigious strength and skill? According to popular legend, Milo noticed a newborn calf near his home. He decided to lift the animal and carry it on his shoulders. He returned the next day and did it again. He did it every day until the calf grew to a four-year-old bull. Thus was progressive strength training born. Here’s another wild athlete story. Theagenes of Thasos was a formidable fighter who won over 1,300 bouts over his two decade career. He even won a crown for long-distance running in the city of Argos. As a boxer, he was never defeated. According to legend, years after his, a vandal tried to deface a statue honoring Theagenes. The bronze statue broke in half and crushed the would-be criminal. 9. Birth Control by Sneezing The Ancient Greeks had various forms of birth control. Some forms involved certain herbs and plants, which worked very well. However, one physician, Soranus, advised women to do something a little odd. After intercourse, women were told to squat and sneeze to avoid becoming pregnant. He also suggested jumping up and down to dislodge the sperm. If that’s not crazy enough for you, the website Snopes.com was still debunking the “jump up and down” method of birth control as recently as 2007. 8. Brazen Bull In the 6th century BC, a brass worker named Perilaus of Athens created a large, hollow bull made of brass and gave it to a ruler named Phalaris. A door on the side of the bull allowed a man to climb into the sculpture. Once the door was closed, a fire could be lit from underneath and slowly roast the person. But it doesn’t end there. In the head of the bull was a series of stops and pipes that transformed the screams of the person into “the tenderest, most pathetic, most melodious of bellowings”. Phalaris was far from impressed. So disgusted by the piece, he asked Perilaus to climb into the bull and demonstrate the capabilities of the pipes. Once inside, Phalaris shut the door and ordered a fire lit beneath the bull. He reportedly said, “Receive the due reward of your wondrous art; let the music-maker be the first to play.” Before Perilaus, they removed him from the bull and threw him off a cliff. Despite Phalaris’s disgust, the brazen bull became the most common form of in Ancient Greece. Here’s an extra fact. Phalaris was a tyrant ruling in Acragas in Sicily from 570 BC to 554. He’s known for several building projects but he did have a cruel streak that made him the proverbial “evil tyrant”. According to legend, after he was overthrown by a general, the new ruler ordered Phalaris to roast inside the brazen bull. 7. Victorious Corpse Did you know? Cheating was a huge problem in Ancient Greek sport, just like today. Most of the time, it was the usual bribery or foul moves during games. Here is a picture of a scene on a kylix depicting two pankratists fighting. One of them is trying to gouge out the eye of his opponent while simultaneously biting. The umpire is preparing to strike the fighter for the foul. Some fighters would find an easier way and try to curse or hex their opponents using “curse tablets” to make them lose. An event held during the Olympic Games was the pankration, which was a mixed martial arts style that blended boxing and wrestling. Most famous of the pankratists was Arrhachion. During the 54th Olympiad in 564 BC, Arrhachion entered the pankration to defend his championship. However, his opponent got the better of him and put Arrachion into a chokehold. It is said Arrhachion’s trainer shouted, “What a fine funeral if you do not submit at Olympia”. Arrhachion responded by twisting and kicking his opponent’s foot and dislocating it. The pain forced his opponent to surrender. Unfortunately, the move broke Arrhachion’s neck. Despite that, the judges named Arrhachion the victor. he successfully defended his title. His fame spread as people held him up as the athletic ideal. Geographer Pausanias mentioned a statue immortalizing Arrhachion during his description of Phigalia

The Greeks Who Pray to Zeus: VICE INTL (Greece)

Even though Greece is a predominately Christian Orthodox country, there are some people in this country who still believe in the 12 Gods of mount Olympus, deriving from Greek Mythology. According to unofficial sources they amount to a couple of hundreds and present themselves as members of the unofficial so-called "Greek Religion". This is a mixture of beliefs that combine paganism, the idea of spiritual connection with nature and a kind of fixation to the Ancient Greek ideals. Over the past decades they have founded various different groups, the oldest and most popular among them being the "Greek Naionals High Commissioned Council (GNHCC) - Υπατο Συμβούλιο Ελλήνων Εθνικών," founded 30 years ago.

4 Ancient Greek Beauty Secrets To Reverse Aging Naturally! Greek Beauty Rituals
 
05:23
Greece, the land of Aphrodite the goddess of beauty, and Helen of Troy who launched a thousand ships, has a legacy of beauty. Greece is considered the birthplace of the arts and the home of classic beauty. The beauty of the Greek women has always been considered a gift from the gods, which meant health, physical and mental strength, luck and outer beauty. Greek women are known all over the world for the beauty that they hold. They believe in practicing the age old beauty remedies so that their skin can glow with radiance. It’s always fascinating to learn about the ways that people of the past used to enhance their beauty. They had no chemical loaded serums during those time and they could only use the natural resources that they had in hand. Now lets take a look at how Greek women kept themselves looking good since ancient time! Olive oil It is said that the olive trees first grew in Ancient Greece. An olive tree is believed to be a sacred tree because it is said that The Goddess ‘Athena’ had gifted an olive tree to the Athenians which grew next to the Acropolis, presumably in honor of the city state’s devotion to her. Olive oil has been a huge part of life in Greece since ancient time. Olive tree symbolizes wealth, health, beauty, wisdom and abundance during ancient time in Greece. Homer refers to olive oil as ‘liquid gold". Ancient Greek women were the first to use olive oil as a moisturizer. Olive oil helps to revitalize dry skin and contributes to the cell renewal process. Regular application of olive oil on the skin will not only reduce wrinkles but also moisturizes the skin and removes dead skin cells. Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and exacerbate current skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin and provides a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep skin smooth and supple. Try using organic olive oil at night as a substitute for your chemical-loaded regular moisturizer. 2. Greek yogurt Greek yogurt is heavily strained to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a tangy, creamy product. Greek yogurt has double the protein, half the carbs and half the sodium of the regular variety yogurt. Chock full of protein, calcium, vitamin D, and probiotics, there’s no doubt Greek yogurt provides delicious benefits for your insides, but its skincare benefits are pretty impressive too. It contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 3. Rose bath Rose petals sprinkled in a bath are the image of luxury and self love. Taking rose bath at least once a week can help to even out skin tone and also tighten pores. The antioxidant properties of rose water help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues. It also helps aging skin, keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. 4. Clay to draw out toxins The ancient Greeks knew all about the benefits of clay masks, long before modern cosmetics companies caught on to the idea. Clay is a versatile natural substance that does wonders for skin. When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these out from your body. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Like us on Facebook: https://goo.gl/eBW5tz Please subscribe my channel: https://goo.gl/1ROjWP Please click the bell button to get notified about my videos.

CRAZY Stuff The Ancient Greeks Did!
 
11:36
Mind-blowing crazy things the Ancient Greeks did! The most shocking facts about the mythology, medical practices, technology, beauty treatments and bathroom habits of Ancient Greek Civilization! From what they used for toilet paper to their unusual workout clothes, we look at strange and bizarre facts about the Ancient Greeks #13. “Apple of My Eye”- There have been some really strange ways that people have expressed their love for each other, but the Greeks nailed it with the weird tradition of throwing an apple at the person you wanted to marry. If the person you wanted to marry caught the apple, this would mean they accepted your proposal. The sources don’t say how hard they threw the apple, but it is fun to picture an ancient greek chucking the apple as hard as they can, giving the phrase ‘think fast’ new meaning. This tradition stems from the belief that apples were sacred to the goddess Aphrodite as she was awarded a golden one when Paris of Troy chose her as the most beautiful of all goddesses--which he only did because she promised him Helen of Troy, inevitably starting the Trojan War. Because Aphrodite was the goddess of love, apples became a large part of Greek romantic tradition. Aside from proposals, it was common for newlyweds to eat apples on their wedding night and people gave apples to each other as an ancient type of valentine. #12. “Political Exile”-In a practice which we wish was still in use today, if the ancient Athenians thought anyone, especially politicians, were doing a terrible job or were considered politically or socially dangerous to the city, the citizens were allowed to take a vote on whether or not the person should be exiled. This practice was known as ostrakismos [aw-strah-kiz-mos] which is the origin of the English word ostracise. If the person received 6,000 votes they would be banished from Athens for ten years, and if they attempted to return they would be executed. However, on some occasions after a few years they could be voted back, which happened a few times when the city needed the person. #10. “Tax Shaming”- In order for a democracy to function properly you would think that strict rules on taxation would have to be enforced so that the rich wouldn’t take advantage, but in ancient Greece this was far from the case. The Greeks practiced self-policing in many ways and the idea of paying your own fair share for the greater good was no different. Yes, there were rich and there were poor, but the Greeks had an ingrained understanding that in order for society as a whole to improve everyone had to make sacrifices. For those blessed by the gods with wealth it was only natural to give back. For the most part, in modern society this is something that must be forced on people via law, otherwise, there would never be funding for public works or necessary governmental institutions. To get the rich to pony up--all the Greeks had to do was to accuse someone of being frugal in their donations. This was a rare occurrence, because in ancient Greece, the way to really brag about one’s wealth was to give the biggest donation. It was also embedded in their culture that most riches were accrued via luck, so there was no inherent shame in being financially less fortunate.

UNBELIEVABLE Ancient Greek Practices & Beliefs
 
07:38
The unfortunate slaves of Grecian times couldn’t even fool around as they pleased. Many of the male slaves had a metal ring secured around their genitalia to seal it tightly. The chastity devices were secured shortly before puberty. Attaching the rings were preferable to having eunuch slaves because eunuchs were prone to health problems and not having the strength of a fully matured man. Subscribe for new videos Monday Wednesday and Friday! 5. No Charmin here Today we have all kinds of toilet paper. We have 2ply, 1ply, some with characters printed on it, and even scented toilet paper! The ancient Greeks weren’t so lucky though, they had the choice of attaching a sponge to a stick which was only available if you could afford it OR a stone. So imagine going into a friends lavatory to do your business and when you look for toilet paper you’re met with a little pile of stones or shards of ceramic pots. In this photo you see a small round stone. That stone and others like it were once thought to be game pieces, but it is now believed that they are the ancient form of toilet paper. Most people won’t even use off brand toilet paper in their homes let alone scrape a stone against themselves. Well in Europe toilet paper wasn’t going to get there until the 16th century and there's only so long you can squat waiting for a roll. If you had been wronged or had an enemy back then you might scratch their name into a ceramic pot, shatter the pot, and then use those pieces as a sort of personal revenge to clean up your behind. Makes you really appreciate that Charmin now doesn’t it? 4.Underwater exploration If you’ve ever watched Pirates of the Caribbean, you’ve seen something similar to what the ancient Greeks once used to submerge themselves underwater. Where a pocket of air in a wooden boat was used to breathe from and to travel underwater. Diving bells were inverted kettles and barrels submerged and help down by weights. Air was trapped in the diving bells and this allowed the divers to return to a place to breath from and not surface. From the illustrations you can see clearly how the diving bells were used.This greatly increased diving time and Aristotle even recorded the greek divers in 360 BC using this method. 3. Taste test Hippocrates, the man who created the Hippocratic oath that still has influence in parts to doctors of the modern world. We’re glad that not all of the Hippocratic medicine practices he believed in are still followed. He had a few beliefs that would make you sick to your stomach, and of that sick to come out he would want to taste how sweet it was. Hippocrates thought that each bodily fluid had a taste, so ancient doctors in Greece were taught the specific tastes to each bodily fluid to check for illnesses. Doctors would make sure urine tasted like fig juice, apparently that's what they thought it was supposed to taste like in a healthy person, vomits sweetness would be tasted, and even your earwax wasn’t safe from the tasting test. Now we aren’t suggesting that doctors only tasted their patients to diagnose them back then but this is among one of the grossest things doctors had to do. 2.Spontaneous generation Aristotle a brilliant man but also sometimes just plain wrong. He believed that certain animals like eels, lice, flies, clams, and a few others just spontaneously generated out of inanimate things. Eels he thought just formed in the mud, he couldn’t explain how they reproduced so he came up with that as an explanation. What he didn’t know was that the eel develops gonads in time as it travels a 6000 mile journey from Greek rivers to Sargasso Sea to spawn and then die. The baby eels then make their way back to Greek rivers which made it seem as though eels were just growing from the mud as adults. Unfortunately, spontaneous generation was influential all the way until 1668 when an Italian scientist disproved one of the greek philosophers theories. 1.Wandering womb First let’s explain that outrageous belief that a woman's womb was able to wander around the body as it pleases and was sensitive to aromas. It could travel low in the body and cause sudden death and hysteria so it would be drawn up with pleasant smells and if the womb travelled upwards it would be driven down by doctors making the women smell cow dung and other terrible things. Things we now have simple fixes to like female discharge were treated in an unbelievable way. The women were to drink a mixture of “roast mule excrement” and wine, delicious. Most ailments that affected women were treated in gross manner and were terribly uninformed probably due to a wide belief that women were somehow lesser beings and that like Aristotle believed women were deformed versions of males.

Greek Mythology  God and Goddesses   Documentary
 
01:28:59
Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece and is part of religion in modern Greece and around the world, known as Hellenismos. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.[1] Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and mythological creatures. These accounts initially were disseminated in an oral-poetic tradition; today the Greek myths are known primarily from Greek literature. The oldest known Greek literary sources, Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, focus on events surrounding the Trojan War. Two poems by Homer's near contemporary Hesiod, the Theogony and the Works and Days, contain accounts of the genesis of the world, the succession of divine rulers, the succession of human ages, the origin of human woes, and the origin of sacrificial practices. Myths are also preserved in the Homeric Hymns, in fragments of epic poems of the Epic Cycle, in lyric poems, in the works of the tragedians of the fifth century BC, in writings of scholars and poets of the Hellenistic Age, and in texts from the time of the Roman Empire by writers such as Plutarch and Pausanias. Archaeological findings provide a principal source of detail about Greek mythology, with gods and heroes featured prominently in the decoration of many artifacts. Geometric designs on pottery of the eighth century BC depict scenes from the Trojan cycle as well as the adventures of Heracles. In the succeeding Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, Homeric and various other mythological scenes appear, supplementing the existing literary evidence.[2] Greek mythology has had an extensive influence on the culture, arts, and literature of Western civilization and remains part of Western heritage and language. Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in the themes.

Ancient Greek Rites: Apollo
 
11:46
Some things to remember. When using oil, remember that if you're concerned that it may discolor your statue, don't use it. I would recommend finding another way to anoint it that is in line with ancient Greek practices and worldviews, or that do not contradict them. Lastly, when the ritual is over, remember that there is always good time for meditation on Apollon to receive His guidance and presence. The sweetness of the incense should help you with relaxation.

Most SURPRISING Facts About The Ancient Greeks!

Check out the most surprising facts about the ancient greeks! This top 10 list of amazing facts of ancient greek civilization shows some of the most surprising things greeks did throughout history!

Yo-Yo The ancient Greeks are known for many wonderful creations and inventions, but as a vase from 440 B.C. shows, they were apparently masters of recreation and finding ways to entertain themselves too. How so? Well, because this vase shows a woman playing with an object that is clearly a Yo-Yo. That's right, apparently, Yo-Yo's were around in 440 BC, and the Greeks seemed to love them so much that they put them into art pieces. 13. Diagnosis: Earwax Whether it was the Greeks, the Romans, the Chinese, Egyptians, or any other famous culture in between, there are always "unique" medical practices that you can find from their early days. In regards to the Greeks, they had a very interesting practice where if you were sick, the doctor wouldn't start checking you out until he had a taste of your earwax. 11. Female Eyebrows That's not to say that ancient Greece didn't have certain philosophies and beliefs for the female body, because goddesses were also represented. But they were especially interested in their eyebrows. For unlike today, where a unibrow is "frowned upon" in terms of beauty, the Greeks really liked them. 10. To Wipe, Or Not To Wipe When it comes to thinking about times before modern amenities, one of the biggest topics brought up is about toilet paper. After all, toilet paper wasn't widely circulated until the 1800's, so that's thousands of years of people having to go to the bathroom and not having toilet paper, so what did people like the ancient Greeks use when they had to go? 9. Athletic Sweat Perks Greek culture revered their sports athletes, after all, this is the civilization that created the Olympics. But in some ways, it was more than just reverence, the very bodies and fluids of these athletes were believed to be gifts straight from the gods and everything they emitted was mystical, including their sweat. 7. A "Fine" Wine When you think about ancient Greeks, you probably think that this culture loved to have social events and parties, and that they would drink heavily all the time. While it's true that ancient Greeks loved their wines, they rarely drank them as they were. Meaning, they would actually "dilute" the wine with water to ensure that they didn't get drunk. 5. Musically Inclined The men of Greece were known to be athletes, and warriors, and of course, politicians, but what many don't know is that a vast majority of male Greeks, regardless of their social status or job, were very well versed in music. In fact, it's said that most men in Greece knew how to play at least one musical instrument, if not more. 4. Spartan Romance The Spartan culture was a very intense one, and that applied not only to their training (which led them to be some of the best warriors in the world) but how they got married, and what would happen when they did. 3. Olympics Are Not For The Married This is an odd custom that was discovered about ancient Greece. Mainly, if you were a married woman, you could NOT watch the Olympics, at all. 2. Political Exile Politicians are a group of people that are both respected and despised, and this isn't just from the modern world. Ancient Greece had that problem too. Remember, the Greeks were the creators of democracy, and they made positions to help the will of the people be known, ergo: politicians. However, the Greeks had the never changing issue of politicians becoming corrupt in their position, and trying to amass power.

√√ Marriage Customs in Ancient Sparta | iitutor
 
03:55
https://www.iitutor.com The marriage customs in Ancient Sparta were unlike those practiced in other city states. In Athens, girls were married in their early teens. In Sparta, they were married in their late teens. Spartans were expected to marry in their own social class. That is where a man would choose a bride and then carry her off. This is believed to have been practiced in Sparta. This suggests a lack of choice on the girls part. A.J. Ball suggests that Spartan mothers did in fact have some choice in who their daughters married. The actual capture was probably a symbolic act. It is believed that some sort of pre-nuptial wedding feast took place among the women only. Special cakes in the shape of breasts were eaten. A hymn, Alcmans Partheneion was sung by young girls. Married life for a young Spartan girl was a trial marriage. It is believed the marriage was kept a secret until a baby was born. If a woman could not have kids then a new marriage could be arranged. “While spending the days with his contemporaries, and going to sleep with them, (a man) would warily visit his bride in secret,ashamed and apprehensive in case someone in the house might notice him. His bride at the same time devised schemes and helped to plan how they might meet each other unobserved at suitable moments.It was not just for a short period that young men would do this,“but for long enough that some men might even have children before they saw their own wives in daylight.”
