HOMO HABILIS

      However, to continue with my story, I am also quite confident that you can tell that I am not a HOMO HABILIS, those people who lived 2.5 to 1.5 million years ago in eastern Africa. Yes, these hominids lived right alongside Australopithecus for about 1 million years, on or near the very same savannas!  They have a funny name, which I’m sure you already noticed.  However, I must make a note here for you.  You see, in the study of Early Peoples, any group with the term “homo” in front of the name had to have a LARGER brain than Australopithecus, AND they had to be able to make tools.  So, although the term may cause some giggles from a FEW, the term OBVIOUSLY shows that early humans with the word “Homo” in front of their names were VASTLY SUPERIOR to Australopithecus.  So, I will now continue in this very SERIOUS discussion!
Although these funny-looking dudes were the first true human species, they really didn’t resemble you or even me at all.  Most of them were about 3’5” tall as adults, and weighed around 113 pounds!  Obviously, they didn’t have a Jenny Craig back then, or everyone would have been put on that diet! Even though their brain was larger and more developed than Australopithecus, they had a limited I.Q., as their brains were less than HALF as large as yours. Despite this, they were still smart enough to become the first toolmakers, forming really clumsy tools out of stone! That must be why scientists of your generation nicknamed them “Handy Man”! They had long, long arms and very short legs, with a thin brow over the eyes and a small nose.
Paleoanthropologists or people who study ancient creatures using bones and theory, found that Homo Habilis “Handy Man” developed tools to help them get food.  Actually, they developed tools to get IN to the food.  Let me explain further. You see, one of these Homo Habilis characters figured out that if he cracked open the bone of a newly killed animal, there was a soft, mushy, but very tasty something inside.  Today, you call it the marrow of the bone.  If you have ever eaten a lambchop, you might have seen it inside the flat, round bone.  Now, having discovered this, my ancestors grew much stronger because the soft stuff called marrow had tons and tons of nutrition in it; much more that any other part of an animal!  So, as the strong grew stronger and the weak died off, my ancestors’ spines grew straight and tall, and even their brains got bigger. Did I remember to tell you that Homo Habilis didn’t actually hunt?  You might now be asking yourself, ”How were they able to eat meat and marrow if they didn’t hunt?”  Well, the answer is really rather simple. They simply followed the hunting animals, and once the skillful animal had made a kill and eaten its fill, the men came in and took the leftovers.  Yes, my ancestors were really only scavengers at that time!  And, because my Homo Habilis ancestors didn’t even have fire, they just sat there and ate the meat raw!  Then the gluttonous scavenger brought back what little was left for the women and children to eat!  YUCK!
Believe it or not (but it’s true), your scientists found remains at ancient Homo Habilis campsites that proved that Handy Man ate meat that was uncooked, small animals, rhinos, and even elephants!  They also found evidence that Homo Habilis “dined” on figs, berries, greens, nuts, insects, eggs, catfish, frogs, birds and RODENTS!  DOUBLE YUCK!
There is also evidence that some other animals Homo Habilis shared the savannas with were lions, SABER-TOOTHED TIGERS (oh my!), tortoises, pigs, ostriches, BIG RHINOS, vultures, lizards and mice!
Homo habilis was nomadic, but they remained in areas near water where food was plentiful.  However, they never really found the perfect place, and lived in one place for only short periods of time.  They probably build shelters of branches, which sounds REALLY AWFUL, but in truth, these shelters were the earliest buildings in the world!  They lived in close-knit groups called bands, and may have even developed a type of hand communication accompanied with grunts and groans, which eventually led to language!
How do your scientists know that Homo Habilis really existed, you may be asking?  Well, that’s a great and thoughtful question to be asking at this point! They know all this because a teenager named Jonathan Leakey, first found the jaw and skull of a Homo habilis in Tanzania, Africa.  In addition, scientists actually were able to put together one NEARLY complete skeleton by using the bones from 16 different Homo Habilis individuals!
Now, let’s return to the “tools” part of the story about Homo Habilis.  After all, these people were nicknamed Handy Man for a reason!  You see, the making of tools requires memory and planning ahead.  By being able to do this, Homo Habilis adapted to his environment, and this is a BIG, HUGE development of Early Humans because it is actually the beginning of CULTURE, or CIVILIZATION!
So, by using available materials such as bones, antlers and stones, Homo Habilis was able to figure out that chipping away at the edges made sharp edges!  So, Homo Habilis made choppers, scrapers and blades, and eventually they used these tools for cutting raw meat and skins!



                   HOMO ERECTUS


     It took many more years for humans to grow up. HOMO ERECTUS, who lived 1.6 to 250,000 years ago, was next on the chain of my ancestors. They actually lived for 500,000 years as the only hominid in existence, so they had the whole place to themselves!
They had very heavy brows hanging over the eyes, a receding forehead that was short and sloping, a jaw that protruded WAY OUT, heavy bones because they were stronger than Homo Habilis, and smaller teeth than Homo Habilis, which proved to scientists that they ate COOKED food, just like you! They walked upright on strong, long legs and had brave, new, larger brains that allowed them to march through Africa and in to Asia and Europe, which was quite a feat during the Paleolithic, or Old Stone, Age! However, they were still pretty short and plump, standing around 5’ to 5’6” and weighing on average around 140 pounds! You might be asking yourself again, “How do my people know so much about Homo Erectus?”  Again, this information was learned from a skeleton found near Beijing, China.  Beijing used to be called Peking, so the skeleton was named, and appropriately so, the “Peking Man.” In fact, the “Peking Man” was found in a cave that many generations of Homo Erectus had occupied for 230,000 years!  Wow, what a mess that cave was! Scientists also found over 20,000 tools and artifacts in there!  Two other partial skeletons and twenty partial skulls of Homo Erectus were found in Africa, and a whole skeleton was found in Java, thereby completing the picture of the first hominid that really traveled!
Fortunately for your scientists, my Homo Erectus ancestors were very sloppy people, both in their caves and while traveling. They left tools and skeletal bones all over Africa, Asia and Europe, leaving a path that, to people of your time, seemed to show that they liked to move in and out of Africa. How did they do that?  Well, about one million years ago, they traveled across giant walkways, or natural bridges of solid, frozen ice and land, thanks to the last Ice Age. You see, during the Ice Age, the earth was frozen solid!  Some of these walkways were a hundred miles wide!  So they were able to wander from Africa to Europe and Asia, probably in search of food. This traveling also allowed them to live in other environments, such as woodlands and forest tundra, instead of just African savannas. These walkways allowed them to travel over what would later be vast rivers and seas.  Imagine trying to return home only to find your way blocked by an ocean!
Homo Erectus may have been sloppy about leaving trash around, but they were very clever! They were the first to control the use of fire.  Now, why was the ability to control fire so very important?  To begin with, they were now able to scare animals away instead of being scared away from caves by the animals!  This very fact made them superior to animals, and allowed these humans to sleep outside of a cave or even IN it, depending on the mood of Homo Erectus.  It also gave them the ability to cook raw meat, and so fewer family members died from disease-ridden raw food! They were also the first to actually hunt animals instead of just picking at the remains of a carcass some animal had killed.  Most importantly, they were the first to share stories around the “campfire” at night!  Using whatever kind of “language” they had, these Homo Erectus, or “Upright Man”, passed down stories from one generation to the next, and these stories helped to explain the world around them.
Thus, your scientists determined that Homo Erectus camped in areas near water for extended periods of time in groups of 4 to 30, and they lived cooperatively, sharing responsibilities like hunting food and gathering food.  They lived in caves and even built rough shelters outside.  One of these shelters was found in France.  It was 40 feet by 30 feet and had an adorable, and very useful, fire pit inside of it!
Your scientists also discovered that Homo Erectus had all kinds of tools.  The best known tool, invented by Homo Erectus, is the hand axe, a long, discus-shaped weapon or tool that was probably thrown at animals.  They also had choppers, chisels, hammerstones, cleavers, picks, bolas, scrapers, punches and spears! 
Now all these tools and weapons came in handy when dealing with the animals that lived at that time.  You see, Homo Erectus shared the Earth with elephants, mountain goats, oxen, antlered giraffes, wart hogs, leopards, rhinos, boars, giant sheep, deer, hyenas and even buffaloes!  Now if the hunters didn’t have a really good day trying to “bring home the bacon”, then the gatherers of the group provided seeds, nuts, roots, bulbs, grasses, berries, cherries, bark, mushrooms, and even the occasional ostrich egg!  Did you know that one ostrich egg is equal to 24 of your eggs?
As you probably know, there were no “rocket scientists” 360,000 years ago!  So, my ancestors explained all the strange happenings as “Spirits”.  The sun, the moon and the rain were all happy spirits, but lightening, thunder, and earthquakes were all angry spirits.  Of course, no one wanted to anger the spirits, so special things were often done to keep the “spirits” happy.  My ancestors ate from the flesh and drank the blood of strong animals in order to keep away bad spirits. When someone was sick, my ancestors thought a bad spirit had entered the body, so a magic man or woman, called a shaman, was called in to “exorcise”, or get rid of the bad spirits.  If someone really died, they had burial ceremonies.  They were actually the first to conduct elaborate burials.  At the gravesite, they wailed and screamed so that the bad spirits of death would be driven away.



                    NEANDERTAL

My nearest ancestors were called NEANDERTALS, or Homo Sapiens.  Now, these ancestors were really very misunderstood by people of your time.  You see, scientists believed, for a long time, that the Neandertals were dim-witted brutes with clubs who walked with bent knees and heads that were pushed forward on big, fat necks!  Scientists based this picture on a skeleton they found in the Neander Valley in Germany.  I guess that’s why people of your generation call them Neandertals.  Now this skeleton was pretty misshapen, leading people to draw conclusions about Neandertals body shape.  However, it was later discovered that the skeleton they had found was really an old, old man who had a crippling disease called arthritis, and it was this disease that bent and crippled his bones.  You see, Neandertals lived 100,000 to 35,000 years ago during the Ice Age, and although they adapted to the cold, cold climate of the Ice Age, it also caused the crippling arthritis found in the skeleton in Germany!
Actually, my nearest ancestors, the Neandertals, were much taller and stronger than my previous ancestors. They stood about 5’8” in height and weighed around 150 pounds. They had really thick bones, large joints, large fingertips, short hands and a skull that was flat on top.  But don’t let that flat skull fool you.  They also had REALLY BIG BRAINS, actually bigger than YOUR generation’s brains.  Now, don’t freak out about this; the truth is that the size of the brain doesn’t ALWAYS make you smarter!  It’s how you train and use your brain that really counts!
The Neandertals lived and adapted to their newly cold environment by wearing heavy skins of animals for protection from the bitter cold.  They used fire not only for cooking but also for warmth.  I think you do the same today, but you call your fires “fireplaces”!
The Neandertals, nicknamed by scientists the “Wise Men”, lived in packs or clans.  It was kind of like having your whole extended family: mother, father, grandparents, great-grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins all smashed into one tiny apartment!  But, instead of apartments, they lived together in caves!  And they all traveled together, from one cave to another, depending on the weather and the animals they ate.  You see, they had to follow the food! 
These clans were divided into two parts: hunters and gatherers.  Women were the gatherers; they were not allowed to hunt!  They could only go out and gather wild berries and roots.  As they “gathered”, they made many loud clicks and sounds to keep dangerous animals away. Men were the “hunters”; they were very silent as they hunted so as not to scare the animals that would soon be dinner!  There is a theory that because of the habits of hunters and gatherers long ago; females in modern society tend to talk freely about others and about problems, while modern-day males tend to keep problems to themselves.  You’ll have to discuss that theory sometime!
The Neandertal hunters were often gone for days at a time, following the animals, making the kill, then bringing the meat back to the clan.  During this time, women and female children did “housewifely” type chores: preparing the fruits and berries and even sewing furs together to make warm, but very smelly, clothing.
Inside the cave, each small family unit (husband and wife, children and maybe a grandparent) stayed within the boundaries of their own “spot”.  It was definitely NOT allowed to look at others’ “spot”.  Everyone basically kept to himself or herself while inside the cave.  Only at very special times were women allowed to “visit” another clan member’s spot. This was usually when a woman was about to give birth; then all the women, one at a time, would visit the woman in labor.  Talk about poor timing for a visit!  Men, on the other hand, could go to other spots and sit and brag about their hunting skills!
So, you can see that the men had a little more activity and a LOT more privileges than women did.  They could go out and hunt, using sticks, bones, stone knives, choppers, hand axes, scrapers, awls, spears, and a type of rope that the women had made. They chased down mammoths, white rhinos, gazelles, wart hogs, turtles (not much of a chase there!), cave bears, buffalo, antelope, jackals, birds, rabbits, fish, the occasional giant camel, ostriches, foxes and reindeer!  This wide array of game was possible because Neandertals also wandered in Africa, Asia, across Europe and even into the area around the Mediterranean Ocean!
Now, how did my Neandertals ancestors know what was good to eat and what was poisonous?  Easy!  If they ate it and died, then no one else ate it!  If they ate it and lived, then they passed down the story of the goodness of the plant to their family unit using whatever kind of communication the clan used.  Some clans used a kind of grunting language; others used hand signals.
So whatever you MAY have heard about Neandertals, I am here to change your opinion.  The Neandertals really practiced a lot of customs and rituals; they had a CULTURE!  They cared for the disabled, sick and elderly, they may have been the first to practice medicine by using medicinal plants, they had hunting rituals, such as using cave bear bones to highlight ceremonies, and they even buried their dead, using flowers!  They used certain caves as cemeteries, and they marked graves with animal horns or stones, much the same as your people do!
And how do your scientists know the Neandertals existed?  You’re right!  Many, many skeletons and weapons have been found and are now on display in many museums across your land!


                   CRO MAGNON

So, after this long story about my ancestors, I’m willing to bet that you can tell that I come from the Early Man group known to you as CRO-MAGNON, or HOMO SAPIEN SAPIENS. We lived about 35,000 years ago, and we completely replaced Homo Erectus and Neandertal Man!  We lived at the END of the Paleolithic, or Old Stone, Age, and although we first appeared in South Africa, we spread to North America, South America, and Asia.  We crossed from Asia to North America when a narrow belt of land where the Bering Strait is now joined continents.  I’m sure your wise teacher can show you the Bering Straits on a map. We built permanent homes to shelter us from the long, harsh winter of the Ice Age. In the summer, we followed the herds, including the Woolly Mammoth, bears, antelope, bison, gazelle, ibex, and reindeer and lived in tents.
To further explain, our lovely winter homes were Ice Age huts, built tepee style, from branches and woolly mammoth bones, covered with animal skins.  Our huts were used for many years, so we built them carefully. And, even though we didn’t have Home Depot to help us, we discovered that warm furs could be laid over this structure and sewn tightly in place, so we were amazingly warm!  When it was cold, the women also learned to soften leather by chewing it, and they turned out some very fashionable little coats, all sewn with needles made from animal bones.
In the summer, our whole tribe moved, following the animals. During that time, we lived in sturdy tents that could be moved from place to place.  They type of clothing we wore changed, too.  Now we wore cooler clothes made from woven grass and the bark of a tree!  Tres chic, don’t you think? The women gathered plants, fruits, nuts and even shellfish.
As winter approached, we returned to our winter shelters and chased out the animals that had taken up residence during our “summer vacation”!  During the very long, cold winter, women created jewelry, pottery, and even little statues that were carved from the woolly mammoth’s tusks, or ivory.  The men, being very skilled toolmakers by now, used the winter to make stone axes, knives, spears, wooden bows and sharp stone-tipped arrows, fishhooks, and even harpoons! 
We are the first hominids to be considered modern humans, and we have bones like you modern humans, brains essentially the same size as yours, and average height of 5’6” to 6’6”, just like you, with a long skull and a high forehead.  We are taller and a lot thinner than Neandertals, thank goodness!  And, of course, your scientists know all this about us because our first remains were found in a cave in France!
Speaking of that cave in France!  Because life was a little easier for my people, the men decided that the caves looked really bare, so they started painting marvelous and astonishing pictures deep within the caves.  Most of the paintings were of hunters and animals. And although they neglected to paint women doing all the REAL work, they still did a pretty awesome job.  They made paint out of mineral pigments, such as iron oxide which produced the color red, and black manganese, which of course produced the color black and made your scientists think that the artists had used charcoal.  NOT!  Now, in order to paint the stick figures and filled out animals, the men had to crawl on their bellies in the cave, winding through mazes of narrow, dark tunnels using only the light of a flickering torch or a hand-held, spoon-like lamp.  They had to carry the paints very carefully, and there was no telling when they might run in to something, like a cave lion or a bear! Now, how did these men sign their wonderful pieces of art?  Simple!  They put their hand up and traced around it!  You can actually see some of these masterpieces if you visit France and go to that cave, now called the Lascaux caves.
Additionally, our culture was highly defined.  We carefully buried our dead, communicated with spoken words, and had a concept of religion and a belief in an afterlife. We kept track of the seasons for events centered on the hunt, we developed a cooperative technique for big game hunting called herding, and we were the first to develop trading with others.
We even had an explanation for the creation of the world! We told a story about a male god of the sky and a mother god of the Earth who gave birth to young gods who were lightening, stars, mountains and waterfalls.  The story told how humans were made out of clay and tree bark and other ingredients! We believed that the gods were immortal, and thus would never die, but that humans were mortal, and would die.  So, even 460,000 years ago, we realized that no mortal gets out of this world alive!  However, in order to help make life on earth a bit better, we developed amulets, little packages they wore around their necks, just like the one I have on.  These amulets were used to ward off angry spirits.  If someone did something bad or broke the code of laws of the clan, this person was declared dead, and no one could speak to them again.  They had to leave the clan with nothing but his or her amulet, because all other personal belongings were burned so that the bad spirits invading the wrongdoer would infect no one in the clan.
But things really changed during the Neolithic period, around 10,000 years ago.  You see, around 12,000 years ago, the climate finally started to warm up. Nowadays, you LOVE warmer climate, but 12,000 years ago, the warmer climate meant no more woolly mammoth or rhinos.  Presto!  These two animals disappeared!  So, living habits HAD to change.
Around 10,000 years ago, the first villages appeared.   People actually learned to take seeds from the plants they ate, plant and water them, and voila!  They created farming! In addition, someone got the bright idea that placing animals inside a fence and feeding and watering them was MUCH better than chasing after them.  Voila, the first domestication of animals occurred! Now, people could finally stop wandering from season to season, and they came out of the high caves and planted where there was water and fertile soil.  However, a very strange thing happened to people once farming came in to being.  You see, people were actually not as well off as when they were hunters and gatherers because, as farmers, they were much more dependent on nature than before.  As hunters and gatherers, they were free to drift from a dry place to an area that had more animals to hunt and wild fruits and berries to eat.  Now, they were forced to stay in one place and hope for weather that would help the crops to grow.  Also, as more and more clans joined together, they lived with less and less sanitation.  They didn’t know about toilets and water purification and bacteria, so that often epidemics killed off half the population! But, despite all the problems, people continued to live and reproduce, and the proof of this is that you are sitting here listening to my narrative!
I’m quite certain that you now understand how my people and my ancestors affected the way you live your lives as Modern People.  We were the ones who taught you which fruits and vegetables were good to eat; we were the ones who started the stories of the creation of the earth; we were the ones who taught you about farming and fire, we were the ones who taught you about burial ceremonies. Yes, without us, you’d never have BBQ’s, salads or even religion!  So you can see that we may have come BEFORE you, but we certainly weren’t BACKWARDS!

BEFORE THE TEST:


Lesson: Re-call Y'all
Lesson Contibutor: Cathy Rodriguez, reading teacher
Brief Description: This is a fun activity for reviewing content prior to a unit test.
Arrange students in groups of 3 or 4. Instruct them to work together to write down everything they remember about the topic of the review (whether it might be a teaching unit, a piece of literature, or another topic). The students' list should include new vocabulary words. One person in each group acts as its "scribe" as others share important themes, character traits, and other interesting facts or information. The group that develops the list with the most facts/information gets loud praise (a foot stomp, a pencil drum roll, or a song) or soft praise (two-finger drum roll or two-finger clap); or sometimes they get a candy treat. Take time to let groups share some of the most important information they developed.
Note: I usually take the test questions directly from these recall sheets; that way, students can use their sheets and follow-up notes as study tools.

SOME EXTRA FUN AND CHALLENGING GREEK WORK! MS. ERBY CAN MAKE THIS A PAGE IN THE HIN IF SHE WISHES.


1. Have each study group design a temple to honor a particular god or goddess.  These are easily made out of shoe boxes. One study group member can bring in the shoebox.  Give study groups 1 class period to design the temple and 2 class periods to create this! Have them look at pictures of the Temple of Hera in Olympia and others for inspiration.
 

2. Have the study groups make a newspaper called The Greek Times.  Choose a time period in Greek history and have each study  group become responsible for a page or article in the paper. They can even make advertisements! This would be great done on BIG PAPER.  The office will give you some.  Only CONTRIBUTING study group members would be allowed to sign the page or articles.

3.  Study the different pottery shapes from Ancient Greece.  Then have students design their own pottery. Each student can make their designs on construction paper and color it in.
 
4.  Study the Greek alphabet. Go to Google and type in Ancient Greek alphabet.   Have the students write "secret messages" to each other using the alphabet. 
 
5. The Greeks didn't have a government like we do.  They had city states called a polis.  Each study group can become a polis - Athens, Sparta, Olympia, etc.  Have each polis adopt their own government and laws. Each polis will need to have a flag representing something important to the polis, at least 5 laws, a slogan and a song!  Present to the class!

6. Have each study group take a Greek myth and rewrite it in modern language. After developing the rough draft, it will need to be edited by two parents of study group members.  Now, the final draft can be done on BIG PAPER.  One study group member will be the "scribe" and will write the story on the big paper, one will be the "active assistant", helping the scribe and searching for spelling and grammar errors, and two students can be the "attending artists":  one will create a border on the big paper that is appropriate to the story, and the other will create an "ending" illustration.  All study group members will need to sign off at the end of the story IF they were truly appropriate and contributing members!

7. Have each study group invent their own Greek monster and write a description of it.  Give the description to another study group, and have them draw the monster from the written description!

A GREAT STORY TO READ AND DO THE WORK AT THE END IN THE HIN!

The Story of Arachne

Athena, goddess of wisdom, was a proud and talented, young goddess. In times of peace, Athena taught Grecians about the arts. She herself was a skillful weaver and potter and always took pride in her pupils' work, as long as they respected her.

One of Athena's pupils was a maiden whose name was Arachne. Arachne was a poor, simple girl who lived in the country. Her father was a quiet man of humble birth. He dyed sheep's wool to earn money for a living. Arachne wove beautiful fabrics of delicate designs, and people began to comment to her that surely she had been taught by the goddess Athena. Arachne denied this and stated that she was certainly better than Athena and that she had learned little or nothing from Athena's teachings. She even went as far as to say that she was a better weaver than Athena !

Arachne was known to have said,"I have achieved this marvelous skill due to my own talent, hard work, and efforts."

Soon Athena heard of the boastings of Arachne and decided to speak to her. Athena disguised herself as an old woman and went before Arachne stating, "It is foolish to pretend that you are like one of the gods. You're simply a mortal who talents are paled in comparison to those of the goddess Athena."

Arachne charged back to the old lady, "If Athena doesn't like my words, then let her show her skills in a weaving contest."

Suddenly, the disguise of the old woman was removed and there stood the radiant goddess Athena standing in front of Arachne. Athena accepted the contest challenge.

As the contest began, it was clear that the beauty of both Athena's and Arachne's tapestries were lovely. However, the goddess worked more quickly and skillfully. Arachne's attitude about her work showed that she felt her weaving was more lovely, but Athena felt it was an insult to the gods. This angered Arachne especially since Athena requested an apology. Arachne refused, and Athena slapped Arachne in the face. Almost instantly Arachne felt her head begin to shrink and her nimble fingers grow into long, thin legs.

"Vain girl, since you love to weave so very much, why don't you go and spin forever." Athena had turned Arachne into a spider.

So it is said that all spiders have been punished for Arachne's boasting, since they are required to live within their own webs. Since then spiders have been called arachnids.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Study Skills:

1. Why was Arachne punished by Athena?

2. Who was the better of the two weavers?

3. In your opinion, why was Athena angry about Arachne's weaving?

4. Why was Arachne so unkind to Athena?

5. Why was it that Arachne did not know she was speaking to Athena?

Unscramble and tell the significance of the words in relationship to the story:

1. aoolpyg

2. aaerchn

3. rteyspat

4. iesprd

5. dceotcien Arachne

Narrator: One of the greatest writers of the ancient world was the Roman poet Ovid. He loved the Greek myths so much that he wrote a long chronicle of many of these myths in his most famous work The Metamorphoses. The following play is taken from Ovid's marvelous collection. It is based on the legendary king of Phrygia (which is present day country of Turkey) who was supposedly the richest person to ever live. This tale is called King Midas and the Golden Touch.

Athena: Prometheus claims that fire is the greatest gift that humans have. What do you say to this, Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty?

Aphrodite: Well, I disagree with Prometheus. I think the greatest gift is beauty. What could be more welcome than a gorgeous flower or an attractive face?

Hera: I would expect you to say that, since you are the goddess of beauty. But I think it is a bunch of nonsense. Beauty is a fleeting thing for mortals. The rose fades and withers, and every beautiful human will grow old and wrinkled as well. What is truly important is power.

Athena: My dear Hera, power is a fleeting thing too. Though you are Queen here at Olympus, humans on Earth find power often short lived. Many kings and queens are dethroned and find themselves beggars. Others are killed by people who are greedy for power.

Hades: I say that the most important thing for humans is wealth. In my underground kingdom, I am surrounded by vast treasures such as copper and iron which humans can make into tools. Then there is shining silver and glorious gold. My domain is filled with radiant red rubies, glistening emeralds, sapphires, and sparkling diamonds. Humans can exchange these treasures for all kinds of food and valuable materials.

Demeter: Well if there was no food these jewels would be as useless as rocks. I say food such as the grains, fruits, and vegetables that come forth in Spring are the most important gifts of humans.

Artermis: Demeter is on the right track, without food humans would be in deep trouble. Of course I believe that the animals under my care are a bit more important than plants. The deer, rabbits, and birds that my woods provide for hunters, and the horses and oxen that farmers use for plowing are truly the worthy gifts of all.

Poseidon: Well Artemis your animals and Demeter's plants can't compare to the value of my watery depths. The oceans, seas, lakes, and rivers under my domain contain far more food than all the land. As well as that it provides easy transportation for humans and their ships.

Thetis: The oceans are also the birthplace of clouds and all the gentle rain that sustains both plants and animals of the world. I agree with Poseidon that water is the greatest of all things.

Dionysus: I have a suggestion.

Athena: Let me guess, Dionysus, god of wine. You are going to say that grapes are the greatest gift to mankind.

Dionysus: On the contrary, I was going to propose that we ask humans what they think is their greatest gift..

Athena: How marvelous! Your wisdom rivals mine on this point.

Zeus: Yes, this is truly an excellent idea, but I would like to amend your suggestion a bit Dionysus. There is a king in the land of Phrygia who is one of the wealthiest men to ever live. Besides great storehouses of treasure, he has abundant grain fields, livestock, and the most beautiful flower gardens in the world. Dionysus, would consent to go to King Midas and ask him what one wish he would like? Perhaps then we'd have a good idea what humans consider to be their greatest possession.

Dionysus: A splendid plan, Zeus.

Zeus: Speedy Hermes and fair Aurora, goddess of the Dawn, aid Dionysus on his journey to the land of mortals.

Aurora: We will do your bidding, Great Zeus, king of the Olympian gods.

Hermes: Come Dionysus, let us depart. (curtains)

Queen: I tell you, King Midas, the tales of your fabulous kingdom do not do justice to its splendor.

Midas: Why thank you, kind Queen.

King: Your throne of gold is most the magnificent one I have ever seen. I assure you that it would certainly be my most prized possession back in my kingdom of Mycenae. Do you have any idea how much it weighs?

Midas: Exactly 452 pounds of pure gold. Plus three pounds of rubies and diamonds.

Queen: Quite remarkable. Still I believe your colossal rose garden impresses me the most. The velvety red blossoms are simply divine and their fragrance comparable to the ambrosia nectar of the gods.

Midas: Yes, it is quite a large garden. But think how much it would be worth if every rose bush was made of gold.

Queen: Surely you have enough treasures already, Midas. No pile of gold could match the beauty of that garden.

Midas: One can never have too much gold, dear Queen. But speaking of treasures, here comes one of my favorite ones now.

Marygold: Papa, look what I've brought you. (hugs Midas)

Queen: Oh what gorgeous wildflowers from such a lovely girl.

Midas: Ah, my precious daughter. It would be a sad day without one of your hugs. Marygold, this is the king and queen of Mycenae in the far off land of Greece.

Marygold: (curtsies) Oh hello, I just love kings and queens. My papa is a king too. Has he show you our wonderful rose garden?

King: Yes, we've just come from there.

Marygold: And the fountain? Have you seen it too?

Queen: Why no, we haven't seen it.

Marygold: Shame on you, Papa. The fountain is one of the best places in the world.

Midas: Why don't you take our guests there, my darling. I have to do some work this afternoon.

Marygold: Well come along, we'll have such fun at the fountain. The water is so deliciously cold and crystal clear. There are lovely fish swimming at the bottom. (exit)

Midas: Let's see how much we . . . . .

(enter Silenus & guards)

Silenus: Take your hands off of me you ruffian.

Guard: Hold still you oaf or I'll give you a few knots on your noggin.

Midas: I say what's all this noise about?

Gardener: We found this scoundrel in the vegetable garden, sire. He was sleeping in a drunken slumber. Half the turnip patch was crushed and a good deal of the berries where he had flopped down on his belly like a drunken fool.

Silenus: I'm no drunken fool. I am Silenus, a faithful servant of the god Dionysus. I have just fallen on hard luck.

Midas: Well tell me Silenus. How did you come to be flopped down in my garden.

Silenus: It was like this, your highness. I was traveling to Athens for the great festival of Dionysus. But last night I stopped by the local inn to refresh myself. Perhaps I had a bit too much to eat and drink. Any way, afterwards I came riding by in a cart. Two fellows from the inn were with me, rowdy lads to be sure; and before I knew it they whacked me around with their clubs, robbed me, then threw my bruised and battered body from the road into your garden.

Midas: But the road is over fifty yards from the garden. Even the greatest wrestlers could never have hurled such a full figured fellow such as yourself that far.

Silenus: Well sire, they didn't toss me the whole distance. First there was a ferocious fight -- me armed only with a sword against five or six of them armed with staves and spears.

Guard: But I thought you said there were only two robbers.

Silenus: There were only two in the oxcart. But there was a dozen or so of them in ambush at the road crossing. They were armed with spears, shields, swords, clubs, and a trident or two as well.

Gardener: Now you say a dozen robbers!

Silenus: The night is all muddled in my head, such a bloody battle it was. Me armed only with a small knife. But I dare say I killed half a dozen of them with my flashing dagger work before one of them knocked me out with his club. There's probably red blood splattered all over your garden.

Gardener: The only thing red splattered on the ground is a lot of smushed berries, you big buffoon. My king, I don't believe a word he says except the part about being muddled in the head.

Midas: Silenus, you said earlier that perhaps you had a bit too much to eat and drink at the inn. What do you call a bit too much?

Silenus: Well I did eat three loaves of bread.

Midas: Anything else?

Silenus: Two roasted chickens and a lump of cheese . . . . . also a jar of olives and two large clusters of grapes . . . . maybe a few dozen figs . . . . and I washed it down with a gallon of wine.

Gardener: No wonder this rotundas galoot was asleep in the turnips so late today.

Guard: Should we give him a sound beating and a few kicks down the road?

Midas: No, the poor fellow does seem to have had a rough time. Put him in the cottage behind the stable. Now listen to me, Silenus. There is a group of merchants traveling to Greece tomorrow. Here is enough silver to pay for your trip. Mind that you get to bed early tonight and no foolishness.

Silenus: Thank you kind Lord, may the gods of Olympus shower blessings upon your grace. (exit)

Midas: Well back to my work. I've done very little counting today and . . . . .

Dionysus: You were extremely merciful to my servant, King Midas.

Midas: Who are you?

Dionysus: I am Dionysus, the god of wine.

Midas: Then Silenus really is your servant.

Dionysus: A foolish one, but yes he is my servant. But it is not just because of your kindness to Selenus that I have come. The Olympic gods have sent me to grant you one wish.

Midas: Any wish?

Dionysus: Yes, any wish your heart desires.

Midas (aside): I could use more gold, but how much. I know! I wish that everything that I touch except my clothes would turn to gold.

Dionysus: Then it shall be as you wish. Tomorrow morning when you wake everything that you touch except your clothes shall be changed to gold. (exit)

Midas: I can't wait for tomorrow. This is fabulous.

(exit)

Narrator: So of all things imaginable, Midas chose the golden touch. The next morning he made a miraculous discovery.

(enter)

Midas: It's true! The first thing I touched today was a rose in my vase and now it's solid gold. I have so much to do today. First I'll go to my rose garden. No more green and red thorny bushes, I'll turn every flower into gold.

Callisto: Here is your favorite breakfast, sire.

Midas: Ah yes, I must eat a hearty meal because I have a great deal of work to do today. Callisto I shall be rich beyond belief, my dear cook.

Callisto: But you are already rich, my king.

Midas: Yes, but I shall be the richest person who ever lived. I shall have a gold palace, gold streets, even gold hills. (exit Callisto) This is wonderful. My knife and fork are pure gold. No more silverware for me. Let me see, what will I eat first? Oh these purple grapes look sweet and juicy. I'll just . . . . good Heavens! They're solid gold. I'll have to be careful not to touch my food with my hands. I'll use my fork to lift up my toast and eggs. Oh no, my toast has turned to gold, too. I'll have to settle for juice and not let it touch my lips. It's no use, even my juice is now a lump of gold. This is madness, what good will my riches do me if I can't eat. I well soon starve to death. I must make arrangements for my little girl who is mother's and will soon be fatherless too.

Marygold (skips in): What a pretty gold flower, though not as nice as the red ones in the garden. Why Papa! You look so sad today.

Midas: I have done a foolish thing, my daughter, and now I must pay a high price for my folly.

Marygold: But you are so rich you could pay for anything, Papa.

Midas: I'm afraid not everything, my daughter. I have some painful decisions I must deal with today. Perhaps you should go play by the fountain and let your father do some necessary planning. (exit)

Marygold: Why I have never seen Papa look so gloomy. If I had some wild flowers that might cheer him up. I know what I'll give him! It always makes him happy. I'll give him a hug. Papa! (exit)

Midas (off-stage): Wait! Marygold, don't touch me! (enter) Oh no! This is a terrible fate. Not only will I starve to death, now my beloved daughter is a golden statue. (Holds up hands) Oh you Olympians, have pity on a foolish man. If I was poor and had my daughter running, skipping, and breathing again I'd have all the treasure I'd really want.

Dionysus: Do you regret your choice, Midas.

Midas: I wish I never had this horrible golden touch.

Dionysus: Then take this pitcher and go to the source of the Pactolus river. Bathe there and the golden touch shall be removed. Anything that the water in the pitcher is poured on will also be changed back to normal.

(exit)

Midas: The source of the Pactolus River? Why the fountain by the garden is the source (runs)

Narrator: So Midas ran as fast as he could toward the fountain. As he ran rocks and trees were changed into gold. But the fountain's water made the change Dionysus had promised.

Midas: The water worked on the rose. Let's see if it works on my daughter. (exit)

(enter)

Marygold: Why Papa, I'm dripping wet and so are you.

Midas: Never mind my beautiful child. Look here is a flower for you. Now come give me a hug.

Marygold: Why it seems just a moment ago you were telling me not to touch you.

Midas: Believe me my daughter, I'd trade my whole kingdom for one of your hugs. (they embrace)
