Spartan Society

The Spartan society was very militaristic. The Spartans needed a large military because they had many slaves who could revolt at any time. The Spartan boys were taken out of their homes at age 7 to begin military training which lasted 13 years, once 20 years old they were put into a citizen army. The Spartan society is known to be a very strict and tough society, thankfully we do not have to live in those circumstances.
