ADAH 360 - Art and Archaeology of Greece


Credits: Three (3)
This course will explore the material culture of the Greek world from the Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Roman period. The material introduced covers a broad chronological span. Students will explore the archaeological remains of the Aegean Bronze Age, the beginnings of Greek cult and architecture in the Dark Age period (8th c. BC) and the development of art and architecture in the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic periods. The monuments and objects examined in this class form the foundation for later artistic developments. Readings and museum visits will supplement slide lectures and provide a point of departure for in-class discussion. This course will provide a thorough introduction to the art and architecture of ancient Greece and will examine recent discoveries uncovered through archaeological investigations.
