Because of the physical geography of Greece, the ancient civilization of Greece developed much later and differently than Ancient Egypt. Greece is a small country in the southeastern part of Europe. It is made up of a peninsula of land and numerous small islands.
Greece is mountainous with few rivers, poor soil, and hot, dry summers. The Ancient Greeks had to adapt to these harsh conditions in order to survive.
