Recently an archaeological digging site was discovered and now it is up to you and your team to reveal the secrets of a culture that has long since disappeared. As you begin your dig, many important discoveries are made that give clues to the way of life in Ancient Greece. In fact, so many artifacts have been discovered that you and your team have decided to divide into areas of expertise to analyze the findings. Although your job is tough, with a team as highly qualified as yours, you should be able to give the Historical Society a thorough report on life as it was in Ancient Greece.

So your team has been asked to display your findings of Ancient Greece through a fairy tale. Standard 6.4.0, 6.4.1, and 6.4.4
