CLCV 314 - Urbanism in the Ancient World


Fall or Spring (3) Paga, Swetnam-Burland (College 200, CSI)

This course examines the development of cities in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East from the first Neolithic towns to sprawling Roman municipalities, c.3000 BCE to 400CE. Ancient literary sources offer "first hand" accounts of those who lived in the communities. Archaeological evidence illustrates the way that people organized, used, and experienced space. (This course is anchored in the CSI domain, and also considers aspects of the ALV domain.)
