This article and others I have read show that, chronologically, ancient Egyptian architecture and sculpture inspired the creation of Greek temples and statues, and partially influenced their style. Other authors have claimed that the Greek alphabet was derived from the Phoenician [a Semitic] alphabet, which I have disproved in a chapter. And, as far as I know, no author of antiquities has claimed influence of paleolithic Occitan (cave) painting and (clay) sculpture on Egypt or on the Greek world. Anyway, the author of the cited article wrote it in order to fight racism against Egyptians, who, as Africans, are presumed to be negroid people. Well, if we look at the ancient Egyptian paintings, statuettes, and the face of the Sphynx, we see that most Egyptian men (with sun tanned faces) and women (with whitish faces) are Caucasian. I claim that the most ancient populations by the Nile, the Hindus River, and many other rivers were ethnically the same -- "Proto-Greek" -- and so were their languages.
 

Getting a Good Overview of Greek History

I am trying to learn about the Greek culture because I married a Greek-American. I figure that history is part of that! So, can you guys share with me some great resources that will give me an overview of the history? I found this on Youtube, don't know if it is any good. I know, I am not a kid. But I figured this would be a nice overview. But, this only covers Ancient Greece. We are planning a trip to Greece and my husband loves history, so I want to at least have a foundation before we go to the country.

Why you wouldnt survive life in Ancient Greece

Is Ancient Greece actually as great as it seemed? We always talk about the great accomplishments of Ancient Greeks but fail to talk about the fact that there was so much slavery and war during the time. It was a dangerous place where many people were forced into violent wars between the Ancient Greek City States. This is the less talked about truth!

Did you know that dozens of ancient theaters are still operating in Greece?

Theater was a huge part of the ancient Greek civilization, and it's still important in modern Greece today. Greeks loves theater, and you were always see flyers for different shows going on. Many of these are presented in ancient amphitheatres that were built thousands of years ago. If you're in Greece, I really recommend that you check one out. There are even plays for young children.
