 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2005.04.66
It is certainly the case that in the archaic period in Greece female burials are marked with monuments and celebratory epigrams with far less frequency than male burials, and one way of explaining this dearth of monumental marking for women is their relative marginality in Greek society.
Such a definition of Orphism, moreover, would apply not only to the countercultural religious groups of the classical period but also to the later traditions that appealed to the ancient wisdom of Orpheus to validate their ideas" (italics mine).
Problematically, this particular statement of Sourvinou-Inwood applies to the archaic period, while at the end of the fifth century and with greater frequency in the fourth, the increasing domesticity of sepulchral inscriptions allows for more incidents of monumental burial for women.

 Classical archaeology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Even during the Classical period, it is completely untrue to say that Greece had one true culture - a great deal of regional variation was present, and much of the study of Greek archaeology lies in examination of these regional differences.
Greek archaeology covers the Hellenistic period as well, frequently compelling the classical archaeologist to examine the Greek influences present in all the areas that were part of Alexander the Great's empire, including much of the Middle East and Egypt.
Classical archaeologists interested in Greece frequently discuss Crete and the Minoan civilization present on that island during the Bronze Age.

Greek culture and civilization continued to flourish in the Hellenistic period: art and sculpture reached impressive levels of technical sophistication; scientists and scholars established great centers of learning like the Library at Alexandria; and new schools of philosophy continued the great tradition of classical Athens.

 Greek architecture
Architecture (building executed to an aesthetically considered design) was extinct in Greece from the end of the Mycenaean period (about 1200 BC) until the 7th century, when urban life and prosperity recovered to a point where public building could be undertaken.
But since most Greek buildings in the Archaic and Early Classical periods were made of wood or mud-brick, nothing remains of them except a few ground-plans, and there are almost no written sources on early architecture or descriptions of buildings.
