• Jeffrey A. Becker deposited Archaeology of Athens on Humanities Commons 9 months, 4 weeks ago

    The ancient city of Athens provides us with a wealth of archaeological and cultural information about the ancient world. Using Athens and its surroundings as our laboratory, this course will focus on the development and growth of the ancient city-state from the Bronze Age through to the third century A.D. The course will explore the archaeological and cultural record of ancient Athens and the region of Attica, examining key topics such as public art and architecture, monumentality, law, ritual, economy, funerary practices, and games.
