Hellenistic Culture and Society - History (CLAM102)

15 credits

This module will explore the history of the Hellenistic world from the late fourth to roughly the first century BCE. It will trace a history of Kings, Cities and ethnic communities, their development and interaction (also with Rome) and it will assess the public and private life of the people living in this new world. Source material will include a wide range of (often fragmentary) historiography, literary texts, and copious numbers of inscriptions.
