Greek History:Problems and Sources (CLA1001)

30 credits

This module introduces the history of the Greek world from the Archaic period to the rise of Rome. It explores who the ‘Greeks’ were, and how their culture came to dominate the eastern Mediterranean and beyond, as well as exploring in depth the different forms of ancient evidence that help us to reconstruct their world. This module offers an introduction not only to the political and military history of the Greek world, from the Persian Wars to the campaigns of Alexander and the eventual conquest by Rome, but also to their economic, social, religious and intellectual life.
