Primary Instructor:

Interpreted as historical artifacts, buildings and monuments offer a unique perspective on the social, political, and cultural forces that shaped the ancient Mediterranean world. Beginning with the Palace of Knossos (c. 1700 BCE) and ending with the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem (691 CE), we will consider fifteen ancient buildings as snapshots of the historical moments in which they were constructed. Lectures will combine close analysis of these structures with a wide-ranging survey of themes and questions in Mediterranean history from the Bronze Age to the Muslim Conquests.

Intended Audience:

Open to all students, including first-year students and non-History majors.
