History Through Art and Archaeology (CLAM100)

15 credits

This module looks at the art and archaeology of the Mediterranean world and the Roman provinces as exciting and methodologically challenging sources contributing to a better understanding of the social, cultural, and economic history of these areas. Subjects will be chosen from a wide range of options including the art and archaeology of Greece and Rome including its provinces, early Italy, Achaemenid Persia, and Greco-Roman Egypt, which will be analysed and discussed according to current methodological approaches, and with a view to key debates in the field.
