During the 4th century B.C., Greek geometry burst its bonds and went on to the tremendous discoveries of the "age of giants." And Greek culture, too, burst from the mainland of Hellas and spread to most of the eastern Mediterranean. Both developments were connected with the romantic figure of Alexander the Great. After Plato's time, teachers and alumni from the Academy had gone on to found schools of their own. In particular, Plato's most famous associate, the great philosopher Aristotle, had set up the Lyceum in Athens, and started the systematic classification of human knowledge. And Aristotle's most renowned pupil was the warrior king Alexander of Macedon, who tried to conquer the world. In thirteen years, Alexander extended his rule over Greece proper, and Ionia, Phoenicia, Egypt, and the vast Persian domains as far as India. Then he died, and his empire broke up. But throughout those far-flung lands, he had founded Greek cities and planted the seeds of Greek civilization-the Greek language, Greek art, and, of course, Greek mathematics. Mathematicians traveled with his armies. And there is even a

Final Exam
Well, Final Exam for history due in 19 hours, and I'd appreciate if any of my friends out there could critique it for me. I've already had some help from stridera which I found quite helpful. Once again, I appreciate any help you can give.
Technology of Ages Past
A new scholar, fresh out of University, sits alone; carving minute letters wearily into a block of wood. His great thesis already lovingly poured into the sheaf of paper beside him; dimly lit by the soft, flickering light of a candle. He knows it may take days to completely transcribe his work to the press, but once it's complete, he can reprint the paper a multitude of times; spreading this information to all corners of Europe.
While scraping the remnants out of a single paragraph, he stops to think about the developments that led to this great device of information dissemination. The very characters he has etched leap from the wood from a time long since past. Indeed, the work he has accomplished may not even be possible without the great innovations made over a thousand years ago during the time of the Greek and Roman empires. I'm certain that he would agree with me when I say that, clearly, the technology developed back then had a far more profound effect on the world than even the great machine sitting before him.
The very script scrawled on this young scholars' parchment is undoubtedly derived in some form from the Greek alphabet. The very text that you are reading now is written in the Latin alphabet; which was derived from the Roman alphabet, which was derived from the Greek. The Latin alphabet today is the primary script used to write in over 100 different languagesi. This is just one of many technological feats that have survived 2000 years to affect our society even today.
