Brennon and Dan take a look at what drove the Greeks to leave their mother cities and travel all over the Mediterranean looking for new homes. We look at the religion, the monetary gain, the conquests and everything else concerning the early Greek colonization movement in the Archaic Period (800-500 BC).
