From 300 BCE onwards, the Greek peripteral temple lost much of its importance: during the third century the Asia Minor temple came to end, also in mainland Greece and in the nearby Greek colonies. Even monumental projects like Artemisia and the temple of Apollo had made little progress. All this had changed during the second century, when the temple building had come across some resurgence due partly to increase prosperity, a portion of improvements went to architect Hermogenes of Priene to the Ionic style of architecture, and between the various Hellenistic kingdoms and Rome partly went to the cultural propaganda war waged. So during this process and massive amount of Greek temples had been built in southern Asia Minor, Egypt and North Africa. As far as styles went the Doric style had fallen completely out of fashion.
Artists like Homer were the first extraordinary mythologists, however myth assumes a part in all parts of shared life. Extraordinary rationalists—like Plato, for instance—every now and again perceived this, and sent mythos to bolster their conceptual logos, which they thought the vast majority would never be capable (or even need) to grasp. Government officials, all through history, have utilized and controlled mythology to win support for activities the fundamental rationale of which may be generally unappealing. Hitler utilized the Greek myth of racial immaculateness with gigantic achievement, and the fighting nobility of Europe, in World War I, depended on myths of nationalistic pride, religious disdain, and racial prevalence over persuade the poor of their nations to kill one another by the millions (7). Drug, as well, has long been the subject of mythology.

An example of this is Ajax dish soap. In mythology, Ajax is a roman soldier known for defeating greece, which ties into the Ajax dish soap slogan “Stronger than Grease”. Ajax the soldier was known for being stronger than all of greece, marketing that their soap is better than normal soap. Another example of marketing is Midas oil for cars. Oil is known as liquid gold, and in mythology,
Though they had other business to attend to,the gods made time to help mortals and vice versa. Favoritism was often shown to humans, for example: ‘At his command, then, “Ho!” they all let fly / as one man. But Athena spoiled their shots.’(22.281-82) Leading the suitors, Agelaos would have killed at least one of Odysseus’ allies if Athena had not intervened and redirected the spears elsewhere.

“ Burial of the dead is the act of placing the corpse of a dead person in a tomb constructed for that purpose” (Joshua J.Mark). Historians and archeologists contribution to our understanding of Ancient Egyptian burial practices is quite significant, especially the discovery of Tutankhamun`s Tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. Historians and archaeologists investigate the past to produce information to learn about times before we lived and try to understand how people lived. Through artefact analysis and examining the historical and archaeological evidence we are provided with knowledge about ancient burial practices. Various archaeologists and Historians have helped us gain knowledge about Ancient Egyptian burial practices.
Throughout history, art has been created by the material most easily available to the artists. Spanning the globe, certain marbles, pigments, and clays define cultural artifacts. However, within the traditional western world, art transformed into a strict vocation and a hierarchy of materials such as oil paint and marble became the pinnacle substances of genius. As a rebuttal against the institutional canon began in the mid-19th century, artists have combined various materials in order to articulate expression and commentary on the changing political and social spheres. In addition, the material used for a piece of art has become as important in the narration of the work as the subject itself.
Greeks during the Geometric period of their artwork was a period of them gathering artistic skills and understand of other civilizations around them. Greece was comprised of city-states. The city-states did not have the same trade routes as other city-states in Greece, but the majority of city-states were fascinated by the artistic cultures around them. A professor of Logic and Greek at Livingstone College in Salisbury, named George James discovers a new origin of the Greek culture. George main idea is that the Greek’s philosophies were stolen from Egyptian’s ideas.
In class we talked about many issues surrounding the Etruscans and our understanding of Etruscan societies based off of the ruins and artifacts that they left behind. At one point during class we discussed how temples were often built to accent a natural feature such as a stream, river, or a hill. We also discussed the differences between scared and non-sacred boundaries in Etruscan societies. I would like to look back on these discussions for a moment and contribute some new thoughts that I hadn’t necessarily worked out earlier In both the Edlund and the Warden articles they discuss how in Etruscan society everything was sacred and under “divine protection” and that there was no division between the divine and the earthly. In a society where there is no distinct line between sacred and secular, meaning everything is somewhat
Socratic seminars are quite new to me, matter of fact this was my second one ever. In result, I don’t deem myself to be a suitable participant. Perhaps will more experience, things will change, but as of now I think they are unreasonably awkward, biased and sometimes even rude. The worst part for me however, is the fact that you have 1/35 chances to speak; people who have bolder voices will of course lower the odds even more. To continue, Heroes of Our Age written by Peter h. Gibbons is an article that basically tells the reader, we had heroes then, now we don’t, and we will be doomed.
Since the person and the deeds would need to be remembered in order to continue on in the underworld, plaques or carved stones were placed at the burial sites to remind the living of the deeds of the dead (Mark). This also continued in the form of regular visits to the burial site long after death to show further remembrance. Again, there was considerable effort needed to be put forth by the living. The rituals performed over the body took time and funds to complete. The funerary plaques placed at the burial site required craftsmanship and time.
Because of this, it is a masterpiece of the ancient world and it can teach archaeologists about the culture of this time period. Its excavation and finding is even impactful in the archaeological society of today. The culture of this time period was typical for this time period around the world. There were social classes, specific foods that they were supposed to eat, slaves, and many other things that other cultures in this period of time had. The culture of this Chinese dynasty and future dynasties of China to come helps archaeologists to understand the tomb and its builders more clearly.
