Primary Instructor:

A survey of Roman archaeology from Prehistory to the end of the Western Roman Empire (5th century AD). Particular emphasis will be placed on the processes of urbanization, state formation and imperial expansion and collapse, as well as on the contribution on non-Roman cultures, such as the Etruscan one. The course will be centered on Italy's exceptionally rich archaeological record, which includes highlights such as Etruscan tombs, Roman monumental architecture, and Christian catacombs. The archaeological and historical evidence will be combined to reconstruct the long-term development of culture, society, economy, and religion within the geographical context of the Italian peninsula.

Course Requirements:

The requirements include quizzes, short writing assignments (about 3 pages), participation in discussion section, and tests. The format of each exam may not be identical but students can expect exams to consist of a selection of the following: maps, slides, fill-in-the-blanks, multiple choice, short written answers, and essays.

Intended Audience:

The class assumes no prior knowledge of history or archaeology and is open to anyone interested in ancient Rome.

Class Format:

There are two general lectures every week and a section meeting conducted by a Graduate Student Instructor. Section meetings include hands-on sessions in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology.
