About This Quiz

Ancient Greece has contributed much to the world in the way of culture, politics and literature. Greek society has given the rest of the world a blueprint to follow for so many things, ranging from theater to government. All of these have endured through the centuries, and our society today has borrowed heavily from Greece. If we had a time machine and went back to Ancient Greece, there is a lot we would recognize. Many of the jobs they did then survived across space and time.

Actors, dramatists and play producers made theater come to life, and today, we follow their lead in that art form. Politicians made laws that affect people's lives just like today. Modern democracy around the world came from the Greeks. Storytellers told their tales. Myths of that time endure until today. A lot of what they did is familiar, so the skills we have now could fit right in with jobs in Ancient Greece.

Have you ever thought about how would you have fared in that time? Think about what you would do in such an advanced ancient society and what your life would be like. There are definitely jobs you could do. Take our quiz and find out which job is for you! Enjoy!
