Colchis and the Golden Fleece COLCHIS, THE LAND OF THE GOLDEN FLEECE REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA. Ancient Greek legends told of a fabulously wealthy land where Jason and the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece from King Aeetes with the help of his daughter Medea. It was a distant land that was reached by the Black Sea and down the River Phasis. The actual site of this legendary kingdom has never been found but the Greeks must have been greatly impressed by the Colchis region of Georgia, through which the River Phasis (currently the Rioni River) runs, for such stories to have been born.

Map of Greece Greece achieved its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1829. During the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, it gradually added neighboring islands and territories, most with Greek-speaking populations. Following the defeat of Communist rebels in 1949, Greece joined NATO in 1952. A military dictatorship, which in 1967 suspended many political liberties and forced the king to flee the country, lasted seven years. The 1974 democratic elections and a referendum created a parliamentary republic and abolished the monarchy; Greece joined the European Community or EC in 1981 (which became the EU in 1992).

Map of Homeric Geography We are not sure where all of the places mentioned in the Iliad and Odyssey were located, but later tradition and modern archaeological excavations have helped us gain knowledge of the sites. Here is a map listing some of the more important sites and a few of the heroes and heroines who were associated with them. Names of Greek sites and people are in purple, Trojan in red.

Map of the Empire of Alexander the Great The territory controlled by a king or people varied from time to time, and was often disputed by other peoples. The coast-line has varied over the years, particularly in the Gulf of Persia. An approximation to the modern coast-line is generally used in the maps.

Map of the Persian Wars Series of wars fought between Persia and Greece. The conflict began when Persia occupied some Greek colonies in Asia Minor. Greece responded by defending the colonies; and Persia, commanded by Emperor Xerxes himself, responded by attacking Greece. The battles were fought on land and at sea. The battles of Marathon and Thermopylae are famous for the Greeks' heroism against overwhelming odds. The naval battle of Salamis almost wiped out the Persian fleet. The battle of Plataea was the final defeat. The Greek victories kept in check the growing Persian Empire. After the wars, Persia continued to meddle in Greek affairs. The answer came in the form of a reverse invasion, planned by Philip of Macedonia and carried out by his son, Alexander. [Greece] [Maps and Geography]

Views of the Acropolis at Pergamon 3D drawing maps Univ. of Washington. The work of David Schulz, a student in the PhD program in 1992, illustrates how computing has assisted in understanding archaeological evidence from the ancient world. Pergamon was one of several ancient theatre sites re-examined in 1992 by PhD students in Theatre History at the University of Washington, working with Dr. Jack Wolcott in an attempt to understand how and why theatrical activity spread from its presumed birthplace in Athens across the Mediterranean world. In an effort to understand the evolution of the city over time, and to understand how the theatre site and the theatre institution related to activity in Pergamon, a portion of the original (1885) site plan of the acropolis was digitized and developed into a 3D model.
