CLAR 2110 - Greek Archaeology
Introduces Greek society and culture through investigation of its artifacts and the contexts in which they are found. Explores the different approaches to investigating particular kinds of material evidence, and what aspects of Greek culture they reveal. Starting with the Minoans and Mycenaeans, examines the growth of civilization in Bronze Age Greece and its rebirth after the fall of the Mycenaean palaces, to the appearance of city-states, and the rise of Philip of Macedon in the 4th century. Examines how to identify and date different types of material evidence, and be able to show their relevance to the reconstruction of ancient Greek culture as a whole.
