Courses in this division do not require a knowledge of Greek or Latin. They are intended for students who wish to acquire knowledge of ancient literature, life, and thought, and of the debt modern civilization owes the Greeks and Romans.
Take me to the Spring Time Schedule
372. Sports and Daily Life in Ancient Rome. (3). (HU).
Readings include selections from ancient writers in translation
and from recent scholarship on topics in Roman history and society
available in a course pack obtainable from AccuCopy at the corner
of Maynard and East William, and books available from Shaman Drum.
In the lectures we begin with some background on Roman religion
and history and then consider the different social classes and their lifestyles; the second half of the course deals with the
athletic events of chariot racing, gladiator fights, and wild
beast hunts, and also includes activities at the baths. Grades
will be based upon midterm and final examinations and upon computer
assignments and participation in class. (Potter)
