ANCIENT GREECE WEBSITES
Click on the links below to start your online search on Ancient Greece. There are credible sites. You can also use the bibliographies/resources on the sites to find other sites.
These are websites that looks 'credible' - however, who created the site?
Another site, Wikipedia, has a lot of credible information. However, since they allow anyone to add information under 'community portal', it may be hard to figure out which information is accurate.
Finally, here is a site that was made by a history teacher that has information on Ancient Greece. It looks pretty good, but there is a lot of advertising. Is the information accurate? Probably, but anytime you see ads, you want to definitely compare the information for accuracy with other sources.
