Example text

In our second lecture we took a look at the very earliest days of Laconia and Sparta—at prehistoric times, the Mycenaeans, the Greek dark ages, the arrival of the Dorians and the “Heraclids,” the consolidation of Sparta itself, and the incorporation of the nearby village of Amyclae. All this, it seems, had transpired by the early 700s. Shortly thereafter the Spartans came to dominate Helos Plain in southern Laconia, and the institution of helotage began. ” In any case, two generations or so later, by the late 700s, or thereabouts—accounts vary considerably—the Spartans undertook the conquest of Messenia, and full-scale helotage began in earnest.
