In the 8th century BC, Greece began to emerge which followed the fall of the Mycenaean civilization. Greeks adopted the Phoenician alphabet modifying it to create the Greek alphabet . Greece was divided into many small self-governing communities, a pattern largely dictated by Greek geography, where every island, valley and plain is cut off from the ground.
Greece has an enormous influence on the culture of many countries from ancient times , particularly in the areas of sculpture and architecture.
