I chose these five achievements because four of the five are what our modern society is based on. A lot of the professions today are what they are because they have rooted from basic maths and sciences. Our government is all democracy! Well it may not be the same as the ancient greeks democracy it has formed from certain methods they used back then. Some buildings, even some more modern buildings, follow certain structural values as the greek architecture. It is beautiful the way the greeks sculpted buildings and made them more like pieces of art. They gave us the techniques and foundation on which to build up new cities and structures. I basically chose these five things because they seem to be the most influential on our modern day society.
