Primary Instructor:

The course looks in detail at a range of the archaeological sites located in the area covered by the modern Greek state which contribute most to our understanding of Greek society between ca. 1000 BCE and 200 CE. In each case we will be exploring the layout and architectural features of excavated buildings, and investigating how they were used. Setting them within their wider cultural context, we also consider what the archaeological evidence tells us about the roles played by different kinds of sites, and in particular, about the lives of the people who once lived at or used them. We begin with earlier, less complex sites and employ a variety of archaeological methods to build towards an analysis of the different components of the built environment and topography of large, complex sites such as Athens, which is the focus of the later part of the course. We also consider how individual sites developed through time in response to the changing needs and demands of their inhabitants and users.
