What was society like in ancient Sparta?
Ancient Sparta was a city-state like the other city-states in Greece at the time, but the people there kept slaves of other peoples. Fearing that the slaves would desire to break free from their bondage, the Spartans decided to impose strict, militaristic regimes on them, requiring every boy to be separated from his family at a young age and trained in combat. Sparta became a very unpleasant place after that.
