Ancient Greek is the ancestor of the modern greek language, and it was used in ancient Greece and the ancient world from around 1500 BC to 300 BC. It is often roughly divided into the following periods: Mycenaean Greek (c. 1400–1200 BC), Dark Ages (c. 1200–800 BC), the Archaic period (c. 800–500 BC), and the Classical period (c. 500–300 BC). Many important Ancient Greek texts have been preserved and have had a huge impact on western civilisations. Learning it gives one the ability to read these texts in their original language.
