AGRS 10A :  Session A: Introduction to Ancient Greece
Course Catalog No: 13549
Dwinelle 182
Dr. Alice Chapman
10:00 - 12:00 PM

Who were the ancient Greeks? Although we will never know for sure, this course seeks to provide some insight into this question using many different types of evidence from many different periods of history. Although the majority of the class will focus on Archaic and Classical Greece, it will also touch on material from the Bronze Age (~3000 BCE), the Hellenistic Period (323-31BCE) and even the modern world. It will include a discussion of archaeological material, ancient artworks, ancient literature (in English translation), historical analysis and even contemporary popular culture. By examining all of these sources side-by-side, this course will provide a window into the ancient world and will seek to demonstrate how our understanding of the ancient Greeks gives us insight into our own history and culture.
