How we can find out about the Ancient Greeks?

Where could we find information about what life was like about them? 

How do historians know what to write in the books though?


What does the word 'artefact' mean?


Look at the hyperlinked website which shows some real examples of Ancient Greek artefacts.

Next we will focus on Greek pottery.

It didn’t just have a functional use but also gave potters an opportunity to tell stories about daily life, battles, god and goddesses.


Look at the shapes and sizes of pots and that they had to be ‘comfortable’ to use so handles were common. Watch the hyperlinked video that shows a story being told on the pottery. 

Practice the different pattern designs before designing their pottery (vase, jug or plate).


It is up to you what you create, but then you need to ensure that the design is in the correct style.
