Ancient Greece

The Greek civilization developed around the 2nd millenium BC in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea: in the Balkan peninsula, the islands of the Aegean Sea and the coast of Asia Minor. 

Greece was not a unified country. It was geographically and politically fragmented during most of its history. 

However, it is considered a civilization as all the people living in that area had the same language, religion, customs...and they considered themselves members of the same culture.
