Sparta

Post  Roberta2000 on Tue Jan 20, 2015 6:03 pm

Sparta was one of the strongest city-states in Greece. It was ruled by 2 kings and a Council of elders, who were all citizens over the age of 60. Spartan boys left their families at 7 to be trained in barracks to become part of the army. They had a very strict education and training. Boys were not well fed and were punished if they were caught stealing food. Boys had to stay in the barracks for 13 years. They could marry at age 30. And they had to stay in the army until they were 60. When they were 60 they joined the Council of elders. Women received an education and physical training. Physical training made them fit and strong so they would have healthy babies. In Sparta life was tough.

Roberta this is a good explication of how Sparta was like when they were age seven to twenty. Something you forgot about was that |Sparta was an oligarchy so that people wouldn't go against their king or the council of elders. Also when a Spartan has already graduated from the barracks and he has gone to war their mother doesn't like that they forfeit but lose there with entitlement. Another thing that you could have mention how the Spartan guys always lived in camps not with their wife, but they have time to be with them sometimes. Very Happy

Great job, Robert! I love what you said and its very true, also very harsh….In Sparta, life was super hard. Women didn’t get a great education because back in those days, women weren’t considered much, only in the 1900s, it all changed. After men finished their job in the barracks and were free to go, they were at about the age of 60. Many of them didn’t survive….

Great work, Roberta!
That's true, life in Sparta was really tough. Did you know that Sparta was pretty much the only city-state with no walls around?

Great job, Roberta!!
The Spartans were great warriors because they were very harsh on people, on their kids... At the age of seven, the kids were already learning how to fight, steal, kill, etc. They learned how to be warriors and only some survived the journey to graduating which was at the age of twenty.

I watched the movie 300 and it was impressive how only 300 men were good enough to hold that big amount of soldiers. The Spartans were really organized and that is why they were that good
