Ancient Greece

Greek Slaves and Kids

    Greek kids were sold into slavery.  They worked in fields, ran machines, cooked, washed clothes, and cleaned. If a Greek boy was born, the parents would put up a wreath of olives. If a girl was born, they would put up a wool wreath. The Greek girls stayed home until they got married. The kids are youth until thirty years of age. The boys stayed home until they were six or seven years old. The boys worked in fields, went fishing, and sold food. Slaves sometimes became slaves by being captured or abandoned. Greek slaves were important to Greek life.  Kids were sometimes kidnapped to be slaves.
