Ancient Cities and Civilizations of the Mediterranean
Dates: July 17 - August 11, 2017 instructor is Nicholas Woolfe
This course covers the development of complex societies in the Mediterranean region, from the first settled communities to the emergence of early cities and civilizations. The Mediterranean has been the setting for millennia of commingling cultures as prehistoric people from Southern Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa shared ideas, exchanged goods, and waged war. Among other topics, we will learn about the role that ritual played in bringing people together at some of the earliest villages in the world; we will compare the origins of early state-level societies in Egypt and the Near East; we will examine how the connection between mythology and archaeology led to the discovery of Troy, Mycenae, and the palaces of the Minoans; and we will discuss how the collapse of these Bronze Age civilizations set the stage for the development of Classical Greece and Rome.
