At school we are studying the ancient greeks. I really like all of the different gods and godesses. My favourite godess is Artemis, the godess of the moon, also known as the huntress. The picture on the right is her, although ofcourse no one knew what she looked like.
So far we have not really done anything about the gods or godesses, just theatres and temples. Did you know that each temple in one city was dedicated to a different god or godess? People used to make sacrifices to the gods, like animals. There could be up to 500 animals for sacrifice at one time!!!!
It seems really wierd, but I just suppose that was the way they lived in those days.
