ADAH 201H - Greek Art and Archaeology


Credits: Four (4)
Prerequisite: Membership in Bascom Honors Program
This course will explore the material culture of the Greek world from the Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Roman period. Students will explore the archaeological remains of the Aegean Bronze Age, the beginnings of Greek culture 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.
