Archaeologies of the Greek Past ARCH0420 s01
Beginning with the destruction and abandonment of the Bronze Age palaces, through the classical age of Greek art and architecture to the conquests of Alexander the Great. This course provides a general survey of Greek archaeology and art. It will address questions of how archaeology helps to (re)construct ancient Greek society, and it will capitalize on the energies and mystique of the Greek past—the monumental sites of Mycenae, Corinth, Olympia, Athens, etc; the art, sculpture and mundane materials of the Classical period; the everyday architectures of the Greek household; the storied landscapes of the Peloponnesus. At the same time, it will engage questions of why the Greek past is important; in what ways are Greek pasts folded into the fabric of contemporary American culture and society?
