The Greece-China Connection

The Theories of Theresa Mitsopoulou

Anthropologist and Archaeologist Theresa Mitsopoulou's theories about the reasons for the similarities in ancient Greek and Chinese culture have not made her popular with the Greek Archaeologists and Academics. But they should probably make their peace with her because she may be right.

Theresa Mitsopolou has studied Archaeology at the University of Athens and has been a tourist guide and lecturer for over 30 years. She has written a number of books which investigate the connection between ancient Greek and Chinese cultures and languages. She speaks seven languages including Chinese and her Guide to Athens and the Acropolis is written in English and Chinese and dedicated to the Chinese tourist whose dream is to come and visit Greece some day. Though her theories on ancient history make sense and she offers many examples as proof she has been shunned by her peers in the world of Greek Archaeology who perhaps prefer to believe that ancient Greece was the center of the universe rather than believe that it was part of a much bigger and infinitely more fascinating picture. But you can read her articles and decide for yourself.
