Course lectures (often illustrated with slides) begin with some background on Roman religion and Roman history and then consider the different social classes and their lifestyles; the second half of the course deals with the major sports of chariot racing, gladiator fights, wild beast hunts, theatre performances, and activities at the baths. Grades are based on midterm and final exams. [Cost:2] [WL:1,3] (Potter)
