traditional field

It is an important component of the hedgerows that were the traditional field boundaries in lowland England. The wood was traditionally grown as coppice, the poles cut being used for wattle-and-daub building and agricultural fencing. These ships served in the U.S. Navy from 1908 to 1914, when they were sold to Greece. Most U.S. service was with the Atlantic Fleet (United States Fleet Forces Command), though these ships did not perform well in fleet-operations due to their lower speeds and shorter ranges. The ships were frequently detached for special tasks, including goodwill tours, and for a time the Mississippi was used as a seaplane support vessel. In 1914, both ''Mississippi'' class ships were sold to Greece. From 1914 to the early 1930s, the ships were active in the Greek Navy, serving mostly in coastal defense and attack roles. In these missions and in the calmer waters of the Mediterranean their limitations were less pronounced. They saw service in the Russian Civil War and the Greco-Turkish War (Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922)). By the mid-1930s, they were relegated to reserve and auxiliary roles. Both were sunk by German (Luftwaffe) aircraft in 1941, and raised in the 1950s to be sold for scrap.

ancient art

to have had a remarkable enthusiasm for ancient art, and a faculty for acting. Like his famous compatriot Petrarca (Francesco Petrarca), Squarcione was something of a fanatic for ancient Rome: he travelled in Italy, and perhaps Greece, collecting antique statues, reliefs, vases, and other works of art, forming a collection of such works, making drawings from them himself, and throwing open his stores for others to study from. Based on this collection, he undertook works on commission for which his pupils no less than himself were made available. As many as 137 painters and pictorial students passed through his school, established towards 1440 and which became famous all over Italy. Squarcione's favorite pupil was Mantegna. Squarcione taught Mantegna the Latin language and instructed him to study fragments of Roman sculpture. Others emigrated to The Balkans, such as Belgrade, Serbia; Bucharest, Romania; Plovdiv, Bulgaria; Sofia, Bulgaria, Zagreb, Croatia; and Athens, Greece; and yet even more Armenians emigrated to Middle Eastern cities, such as Tehran, Cairo, Egypt; Aleppo, Syria and Beirut, Lebanon. Throughout this article Norman uses "Near East" to mean the countries where "the eastern question" applied; that is, to all of the Balkans. The countries and regions mentioned are Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina (which was Moslem and needed, in his view, to be suppressed), Macedonia (Macedonia (region)), Montenegro, Albania, Romania. The rest of the Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) domain is demoted to just "the east." The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Greece conducts "bilateral relationships" with the countries of the "Mediterranean – Middle East Region" but has formulated no Near East Region.

extremely detailed

of his life for the most part in Italy, at Naples, and Rome. He died at Rome from the effects of an illness contracted in 1830 during a visit of exploration to the Sabine Mountains. Dodwell's widow, a daughter of Count Giraud, thirty years his junior, subsequently became famous as the "beautiful" countess of Spaur, and played a considerable role in the political life of the papal city. In 1850 he published the ''Life of Calvin'', an extremely detailed and on the whole impartial work and his influence in the religious world generally is insufficiently appreciated. Dyer's first historical work was the ''History of Modern Europe'' (1861–1864; 3rd ed. revised and continued to the end of the 19th century, by A. Hassall, 1901), a meritorious compilation and storehouse of facts, but not very readable. The ''History of the City of Rome'' (1865) down to the end of the Middle Ages was followed by the ''History of the Kings of Rome'' (1868), which, upholding against the German school the general credibility of the account of early Roman (Ancient Rome) history, given in Livy and other classical authors, was violently attacked by J. R. Seeley (John Robert Seeley) and the ''Saturday Review (Saturday Review (London))'', as showing ignorance of the comparative method. More favorable opinions of the work were expressed by others, but it is generally agreed that the author's scholarship is defective and that his views are far too conservative. ''Roma Regalis'' (1872) and ''A Plea for Livy'' (1873) were written in reply to his critics. Dyer frequently visited Greece and Italy, and his topographical works are probably his best; among these mention may be made of ''Pompeii, its History, Buildings and Antiquities'' (1867, new ed. in Bohn's ''Illustrated Library''), and ''Ancient Athens, its History, Topography and Remains'' (1873). His last publication was ''On Imitative Art'' (1882). He died at Bath (Bath, Somerset) on 30 January 1888. Thiva – Tanagra – Malakasa (Asopos) Basin In the Thiva (Thebes, Greece) – Tanagra – Malakasa basin, Eastern Sterea Ellada, Greece, which supports many industrial activities, concentrations of chromium (up to 80 μg L Cr(VI)) and Inofyta (up to 53 μg L Cr(VI) were found in the urban water supply of Oropos . Cr(VI) concentrations ranging from 5 to 33 μg L Cr(VI) were found in groundwater that is used for Thiva's water supply. Arsenic concentrations up to 34 μg L along with Cr(VI) levels up to 40 μg L were detected in Schimatari's water supply. In the Asopos River (Asopus), total chromium values were up to 13 μg L, hexavalent chromium was less than 5 μg L and other toxic elements were relatively low. In 1834 Rottmann traveled to Greece to prepare for a commission from Ludwig for a second cycle; one might mark here the beginning of his third period. At first also intended for the Hofgarten arcade, the 23 great landscapes were eventually installed in the newly-built Neue Pinakothek where they were given their own hall. While riding a tour bus in Germany, Brian looks at a history book that has no information regarding German history from September 1, 1939 - September 1, 1945; the dates on which World War II started and ended. Brian questions the tour guide about the dates when Germany invaded Poland, but the guide denies that it happened (Holocaust denial). Brian keeps insisting until the guide yells "Sie werden sich hinsetzen, Sie werden ruhig sein, Sie werden nicht beleidigen Deutschland" (German: "You will sit down, you will be quiet, you will not insult Germany") while making the Nazi salute. At the beginning of the episode, the credits are presented with title cards, in these title cards there are images of Brian and Stewie passing by various iconic places in Europe. These include France's Eiffel Tower, Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa and a venetian (Venice) gondola, the United Kingdom's Stonehenge and Greece's Parthenon. Other iconic items shown include the Union Flag and the Pope.

successful songs

composers continued to borrow elements from the Heptanesean style. The most successful songs during the period 1870–1930 were the so-called Athenian serenades, and the songs performed on stage (επιθεωρησιακά τραγούδια 'theatrical revue songs') in revue, operettas and nocturnes that were dominating Athens' theater scene. Rebetiko, initially a music associated with the lower classes, later (and especially after the population exchange between Greece and Turkey) reached greater general acceptance as the rough edges of its overt subcultural character were softened and polished, sometimes to the point of unrecognizability. It was the base of the later laïkó (song of the people). The leading performers of the genre include Apostolos Kaldaras, Grigoris Bithikotsis, Stelios Kazantzidis, George Dalaras, Haris Alexiou and Glykeria. Regarding the classical music, it was through the Ionian islands (which were under western rule and influence) that all the major advances of the western European classical music were introduced to mainland Greeks. The region is notable for the birth of the first School of modern Greek classical music (Heptanesean or Ionian School (Ionian School (music)), Greek: ''Επτανησιακή Σχολή''), established in 1815. Prominent representatives of this genre include Nikolaos Mantzaros, Spyridon Xyndas, Spyridon Samaras and Pavlos Carrer. Manolis Kalomiris is considered the founder of the Greek National School of Music. In the 20th century, Greek composers have had a significant impact on the development of avant garde and modern classical music, with figures such as Iannis Xenakis, Nikos Skalkottas, and Dimitri Mitropoulos achieving international prominence. At the same time, composers and musicians such as Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis, Eleni Karaindrou, Vangelis and Demis Roussos garnered an international following for their music, which include famous film scores such as Zorba the Greek, Serpico, Never on Sunday, America America, Eternity and a Day, Chariots of Fire, among others. Greek American composers known for their film scores include Yanni and Basil Poledouris. Notable Greek opera singers and classical musicians of the 20th and 21st century include Maria Callas, Nana Mouskouri, Mario Frangoulis, Leonidas Kavakos, Dimitris Sgouros and others. Greece participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 35 times after its debut at the 1974 Contest (Eurovision Song Contest 1974). In 2005 (Eurovision Song Contest 2005), Greece won with the song "My Number One", performed by Greek-Swedish singer Elena Paparizou. The song received 230 points with 10 sets of 12 points from Belgium, Bulgaria, Hungary, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Albania, Cyprus, Serbia & Montenegro, Sweden and Germany and also became a smash hit in different countries and especially in Greece. The 51st Eurovision Song Contest (Eurovision Song Contest 2006) was held in Athens at the Olympic Indoor Hall of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex in Maroussi, with hosted by Maria Menounos and Sakis Rouvas.

Judaism has existed (History of the Jews in Greece) in Greece for more than 2,000 years. Sephardi Jews used to have a large presence in the city of Thessaloniki (by 1900, some 80,000, or more than half of the population, were Jews), but nowadays the Greek-Jewish community who survived German occupation and the Holocaust, during World War II, is estimated to number around 5,500 people.

Greek citizens who are Roman Catholic are estimated to be at around 50,000 with the Roman Catholic immigrant community in the country approximately 200,000. Old Calendarists (Greek Old Calendarists) account for 500,000 followers.

Hellenic Polytheistic Reconstructionism has also been reportedly practiced by thousands of Greeks.
