Government and Law - The Ancient Greeks: Episode 3

April 14th, 2020


Welcome to The Ancient Greeks podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This third episode looks at Government and Law. The Ancient Greek world had no single system of law; individual states like Athens and Sparta, instead created their own political and legal ideas. The most common systems of Greek government were Democracy - where the people made the decisions. Monarchy - rule by one individual who had inherited his role, much like a King. Oligarchy - rule by a small group of people.


Written and Narrated by Cambridge University Archaeologist: Matthew John Brooks
