Culture of Greece Dancers from Sfakia Old man from Crete dressed in the typical black shirt Crete has its own distinctive Mantinades poetry. The island is known for its Mantinades-based music typically performed with the Cretan lyra and the laouto and has many indigenous dances, the most noted of which is the Pentozali. In the Renaissance, Crete was the home of the Cretan School of icon painting, which influenced El Greco and through him subsequent European painting. Cretans are fiercely proud of their island and customs, and men often don elements of traditional dress in everyday life: Black is the color of mourning, and since Cretan families are notionally considered so extended as to include great-grandparents or second cousins although they may have little actual contact as well as all their respective in-laws, one is theoretically justified to be in continuous mourning for some relative or other, however distant. On festive occasions those who are not in mourning wear white, most notably white boots and headdress.

GEORGIOS SAMARAS has travelled to Spain for talks with La Liga side Malaga. The Greek World Cup star is still without a club after leaving Celtic at the end of his contract in May.
Celtic legend Bobby Lennox: The key to the form of Georgios Samaras is confidence It’s a bit like asking, how does an aircraft stay up? So long as it does, who cares? The enigma that is Georgios Samaras has divided supporters since the day in January the Greek international walked in the front door at Parkhead. The escape to the SPL was predicted to provide short-term respite for the troubled youngster. However, as he approaches his fifth anniversary as a Celt, Samaras now stands as a man who has not only won games, but the respect of the support.
Sure, the 27 will still frustrate when he misplaces a pass, or mishits a shot, his long hair framing a face which frequently carries an expression of complete disbelief that something he has attempted has not come off. But when he is not in the team — which now tends only to be because of injury rather than non-selection — the value of Sami is clear for all to see, even those who were his biggest critics.
The important goals scored in crucial games — as in Moscow last week and against Hearts at the weekend — merely underline why Gordon Strachan brought him to Glasgow, and why Neil Lennon was prepared to stick by him.

The earliest reference to Corfu is the Mycenaean Greek word ko-ro-ku-ra-i-jo “man from Kerkyra” written in Linear B syllabic script, c. The island has indeed been identified by some scholars with Scheria, the island of the Phaeacians described in Homer ‘s Odyssey , though conclusive and irrefutable evidence for this theory or for Ithaca ‘s location have not been found. Apollonius of Rhodes depicts the island in Argonautica as a place visited by the Argonauts.
Jason and Medea were married there in ‘Medea’s Cave’. Apollonius named the island Drepane, Greek for “sickle”, since it was thought to hide the sickle that Cronus used to castrate his father Uranus , from whose blood the Phaeacians were descended.
Enormous congratulations to Georgios Samaras, Celtic’s Player of the Year, Scoring in five consecutive Champions League away games this season was a remarkable feat. His last minute winner in Moscow was a seismic moment in our progress in that tournament.
Sven-Goran Eriksson has just four days to decide whether he wants the CSKA Moscow star and to then sort out a deal with the year-old and his representatives. Jo is available following Moscow’s abject performance in the Champions League in which they finished bottom of Group G. The Brazil international, who has just one cap to his name, scored twice in four outings in the competition and has had a decent scoring record since moving to Russia from Corinthians in his own country.
It was thought that Eriksson would move for CSKA’s more vaunted hitman Love ndash and he still may do so ndash but the 6ft 2ins Jo’s beefier style is perhaps more akin to what the Blues require and when Valencia this week pulled out of a deal to take the striker to La Liga because they felt the cost too great, City became favourites to land the player work permit issues permitting!
The arrival of a new face may be a blow to feted Blues teenager Daniel Sturridge who had hoped to climb the ladder following the departure of Rolando Bianchi, but with Georgios Samaras and Emile Mpenza’s futures with City beyond this season far from certain, there may yet be plenty of opportunity for Sturridge who scored a superb goal at Sheffield United yesterday. The year-old former Genoa man is, however, rated at 18m and the Spaniards are unlikely to sell until the summer.
Meanwhile, Djibril Cisse, still a possible loan target, bagged three of Marseille’s six goals in their league game. In outgoing news, keeper Andreas Isaksson looks as though he may be on the way to Galatasaray and that will leave the way clear for Eriksson to make an improved bid for Elfsborg’s Sweden Under s starlet Abbas Hassan. The Blues are hoping that a loan deal for Georgios Samaras not to Espanyol may yet come off in the next 48 hours.

Greece captain Konstantinos Katsouranis was sent off on 38 minutes having picked up two quick yellow cards for some needless late challenges. However, despite enjoying plenty of possession, Japan were unable to find a way past Greek goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis, who saved well from both Yuya Osako and Yoshito Okubo. Japan, who had led against the Ivory Coast before losing in Recife, had Cologne forward Osako in attack, with Manchester United winger Shinji Kagawa placed among the substitutes.

The entrance of the Treasury of Atreus 13th BC in Mycenae The earliest evidence of the presence of human ancestors in the southern Balkans , dated to , BC, is to be found in the Petralona cave , in the Greek province of Macedonia. The Mycenaeans gradually absorbed the Minoans, but collapsed violently around BC, during a time of regional upheaval known as the Bronze Age collapse.
These states and their colonies reached great levels of prosperity that resulted in an unprecedented cultural boom, that of classical Greece , expressed in architecture , drama , science , mathematics and philosophy. In BC, Cleisthenes instituted the world’s first democratic system of government in Athens. A second invasion by the Persians followed in BC. Following decisive Greek victories in and BC at Salamis , Plataea , and Mycale , the Persians were forced to withdraw for a second time, marking their eventual withdrawal from all of their European territories.
Led by Athens and Sparta, the Greek victories in the Greco-Persian Wars are considered a pivotal moment in world history,  as the 50 years of peace that followed are known as the Golden Age of Athens , the seminal period of ancient Greek development that laid many of the foundations of Western civilization. Alexander the Great , on his horse Bucephalus , whose conquests led to the Hellenistic Age. Lack of political unity within Greece resulted in frequent conflict between Greek states.
The most devastating intra-Greek war was the Peloponnesian War — BC , won by Sparta and marking the demise of the Athenian Empire as the leading power in ancient Greece.

Georgios is a player who thrives on positive reinforcement but endures negative sentiment without hiding. No wonder all his managers have valued him so highly.

Apollonius of Rhodes depicts the island in Argonautica as a place visited by the Argonauts. Jason and Medea were married there in ‘Medea’s Cave’. Apollonius named the island Drepane, Greek for “sickle”, since it was thought to hide the sickle that Cronus used to castrate his father Uranus , from whose blood the Phaeacians were descended.
In an alternative account, Apollonius identifies the buried sickle as a scythe belonging to Demeter , yet the name Drepane probably originated in the sickle-shape of the island. According to a scholiast , commenting on the passage in Argonautica, the island was first of all called Macris after the nurse of Dionysus who fled there from Euboea.
At a date no doubt previous to the foundation of Syracuse , Corfu was peopled by settlers from Corinth , probably BC, but it appears to have previously received a stream of emigrants from Eretria. The commercially advantageous location of Corcyra on the way between Greece and Magna Grecia , and its fertile lowlands in the southern section of the island favoured its growth and, influenced perhaps by the presence of non-Corinthian settlers, its people, quite contrary to the usual practice of Corinthian colonies, maintained an independent and even hostile attitude towards the mother city.
The island soon regained its independence and thenceforth devoted itself to a purely mercantile policy.
