P>The Department of Classical Studies believes that the literature, monuments, and social institutions of the ancient world, together with the reflections of the Greek and Roman thinkers about their own cultures, are of unique value in themselves, well worth our contemplation and understanding; and that as we attempt to learn about and appreciate classical civilization, we necessarily learn as well a variety of contemporary methodologies and disciplines.

The department offers three groups of courses for distribution, those in Classical Civilization (introductory courses that require no knowledge of Greek or Latin), courses in Classical Archaeology, and upper-level language courses in Greek and Latin authors or genres. While only a few courses are repeated in yearly or biennial rotation, most courses are offered less regularly. This system guarantees that the instructor approaches the subject each time with fresh impetus. We believe in a healthy change and variation in our course offerings.

Classical Archaeology offerings include the broad surveys of the archaeology and monuments of Greece (Cl.Arch 221 offered in the Fall) and Rome (Cl.Arch 222 offered in the Winter) and a general introduction to archaeological field methods (Cl.Arch 323). Other courses use the material remains of specific cultures both to introduce students to the diversity of the ancient world and to demonstrate how, through a variety of multi-disciplinary approaches, the societies.

archaeological record can be used to reconstruct the life-ways of past societies.

CLARCH 222 / HISTART 222. Introduction to Roman Archaeology.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Susan E Alcock (

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (HU).

Course Homepage:

If you have ever watched (and who hasn't!) Gladiator, Spartacus, Life of Brian, or Bugs Bunny: Roman Legion Hare then you possess some image of Rome, the Romans, and the Roman Empire. While exploring and assessing these popular perceptions, this course introduces a more balanced view of the archaeology and art of ancient Rome. In its prime, the Roman Empire extended from modern day Britain to the modern day Middle East; its inhabitants ranged from god-like emperors to beggars and slaves. This course will not only study the developing art and architecture of this imperial world, but will also pursue a series of other questions. How was this vast and diverse empire governed? Who or what did its inhabitants worship? How did they feel about their emperor? How were they entertained? Why did the Roman Empire 'decline and fall'? Lectures will provide a broad overview of these subjects, with weekly discussion sections exploring specific topics in more detail. There are no prerequisites for the course; requirements consist of two hour exams, a final exam, and strong section participation.
