ANTH 459 - Mediterranean Archaeology

  • 3 credits
View available sections

This class aims to familiarize the student with the broad anthropological trends of the archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean (specifically Greek and Roman) worlds. We will approach this ancient Mediterranean world via important archaeological topics and trends that contextualize the historical and socio-political trends, influences, and
impetuses to come to a holistic understanding of what it meant to be a Greek or Roman from c. 1300 BCE – 330 CE. In addition, a secondary goal is to introduce students to the
basic sets of evidence available to any scholar of this world (archaeology, epigraphy, philology, glyptic, etc.), and how Mediterranean archaeologists have historically approached this evidence (with their inherent problems and benefits).
