Ancient Greek Democracy

We learnt about Ancient Greek city states. We discovered that Athens was the seat of democracy and that people were allowed to vote on different matters. We learnt how to vote and all about the ostracon. People would vote to exile those leaders who were mean. The person with the most votes would have to leave Athens and would not be allowed to return for 10 years! These pieces of pottery are where we get the word ostracised from.
