CLCV 342 - Pompeii and Herculaneum


Fall or Spring (3) Swetnam-Burland (College 200, ALV, CSI, GER 5)

A study of Roman civilization in microcosm through the examination of the towns destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. The archaeological evidence from these towns is combined with literary and epigraphical evidence to provide a vivid recreation of Roman society, politics, daily life, art, and religion. (This course is anchored in the ALV and CSI domains.)
