Ancient Greece refers to Greek history from 750 BC to 146 BC which provided the foundatgion of Western civilzation. Greek culture had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire in language, politics, science and arts. A fierce Greek heavy infantryman was known as a Hoplite, was the central element in Ancient Greek warfare. The Hoplite derices from hoplon meaning an item of armour or equipment, thus hoplite refers to "armoured man". The most well known hoplites were the Spartans, whom trained from childhoold in combat and warfare. Each hoplite provided their own equipment which was a Corinthian helmet, circular shield, spear, sword and muscle armour. The muscle armour was made of bronze and was worn with bronze greaves.
