About Ancient Greece Revisited

Ancient Greece Revisited (AGR) is my latest ongoing project, created with my colleague Michael Michailidis who had the original idea, and has a great potential to become a landmark series in online platforms and even streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon. At the moment it is available on Youtube as a series of short documentaries, interviews and podcasts.

What is AGR about?

We are told that our cultures stand on ideas first thought in Greece, a very long time ago. But how much do we understand of this lost world? Is the petrified ideal of a “White Greece” something that Socrates would recognise as his own? Or have we been fed the ideas of those who first reclaimed his culture?

Ancient Greece Revisited is the result of an effort from a modern team of Greeks to find a new access to their culture. Through the orgiastic rituals of Dionysus and the true meaning of Eros, to the miracle of democracy and its original and best critique, from the people who first developed it, we promise to bring to life a vision of Greece that goes against the “whitewashed” version that British Hellenists made universal to this day. A world of the past that could inspire the future!
