ARCA1001 - Ancient Civilisations
Semester 1, 2013 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Alison Betts
This unit is a general introduction to the major civilisations of the ancient world - Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece and Rome, China, South East Asia, the Indus Valley, Bactria and Margiana (Central Asia). No prior knowledge of any of these societies is presumed. We aim to balance discussing broad issues relevant to all ancient civilisations, and specific cases (sites, material remains) from specific civilisations. By the end of this unit, you should have gained an appreciation of the major achievements and characteristics of many of the world's earliest civilisations.
