Ancient Greek Society

By Hannah Davis and Kimberly Berlow


R ole of slaves in spartan society

Role of Slaves in Spartan Society

  • Sparta depends entirely upon forced labor. The slaves made armor, food, and everything else regular citizens would do in a normal city.

  • Slaves had no power or status. They had the right to have a family and own property, subject to their master's goodwill and permission, but they had no political rights.

  • What did the slaves have a right to do?


E xpectations

Expectations

  • The expectations of the Athenian girls were that they did not do sports; they would stay home where they performed household tasks and learned to weave cloth from sheep’s wool. Then the expectations of the Athenian boys were that they would work with their fathers as farmers, potters, or stoneworkers. Then the wealthy parents sent their sons to school to learn how to read and write. Some typical Athenian jobs were farmers, potters, or stoneworkers. Not all the Athenian boys went to school only the boys who had wealthy parents.

Did the expectations interfere with there everyday life? If so, Why?

Jobs

  • The jobs that were required were farmers who worked on farms and raised animals and planted crops. Sailors who sailed and traveled around the Mediterranean sea to trade for grain. Then most of the Sparta's farm workers were helots. Helots can't leave the land they worked on and had to pay half of their yearly crops to their Spartan conquerors as taxes. They were a little better off than slaves. Then there are potters who make pottery and then there were stoneworkers who cut stones.

Do you think it was easy to find a job in Ancient Greece?
