Greek Archaeology Survey, Part 2
The second of a two-part intensive survey of the material culture of the Ancient Greek world, this time focusing in the Classical and Hellenistic periods (ca. 480-31 BC). The course will examine the archaeological evidence for civic, rural, sacred, funerary and domestic activities and will consider the development of architectural, sculptural, and ceramic forms throughout the period in order to understand how material culture both reflects and shapes cultural identity. Special attention will be paid to the definition of "Classical" Greek culture and its re-definition in the Hellenistic period. Various methodological approaches and theoretical models will be introduced.
