At a Glance

When Greek colonists set out across the Black Sea, they encountered a limitless sea, without islands, without a single reference point in the horizon, with high mountains dropping straight down to dark waters, creating inhospitable shores. It was a new world — nothing like the friendly, sunny home they had left behind. But still, waves of Greek migrants wrestled with these foreign and hostile elements and founded dozens of cities and trade posts. Join a Greek historian to learn how the Greeks established relations with the local populations, introducing their economy, commerce, culture, language and lifestyle along the Black Sea.
