The difference is in the pillars! From afar, the pillars look very similar (like in this picture). But the top of the pillars is different. Greek architecture follows the golden rule, which is shape that can be wholly divided into up into a square and a rectangle that, when combined, establish a ratio of 1:1.61.

Did an earthquake cause the fall of the Greek Bronze Age?

I don't want to get too controversial here and I know that this is super contested, but is it possible that an earthquake caused the fall of the Greek bronze age? How can such a powerful empire collapsed as a result of the environment? I mean just look at this architecture... Thoughts?

How historical are some of the traditional Greek dances?

I know a handful of common Greek traditional dances, such as the Syrtos (Kalamatianos), Zymbeiko, tsamikos, hasaposervikos, the "Never on a Sunday", the syrtaki, and a few others. Do any of these have roots in Ancient Greece?
