This course begins with Iron Age architecture, as represented in hut-urns and in actual villages, then progresses to archaic monuments in Rome, Etruria, and Latium, where knowledge has been dramatically expanded by recent discoveries. The complex problems of Roman architecture in the 4th-2nd centuries BCE and of its ambiguous relationship with Hellenistic Greek architecture will be treated in much greater detail than in other surveys of Roman architecture. The conclusion of the course covers the revolutionary developments of the 1st century BCE, from the emergence of residential villas to the appearance of massive state-funded architecture like the Theater of Pompey. Imperial architecture will be covered in CLARCH 521

This and its sister course, CLARCH 426, represent a more detailed and in-depth approach to Roman architecture than CLARCH 436, which is deemed appropriate for a program that emphasizes Roman archaeology both at the Graduate and Undergraduate level.

Intended audience: Concentrators in Classics and beginning Graduate students.

Course Requirements: 1 short quiz, 2 hour-long exams, one 20-page paper.

Class Format: 3 hours lecture per week,
