ARCA2612 - A Greek Odyssey: The First Millennium BC

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Lesley Anne Beaumont


Between 1050 and 146 BC the Aegean world underwent radical transformation. The changes which took place not only affected all aspects of ancient Greek society, but also established the foundations on which modern western civilization would later build. This unit traces the history and development of the Greek world as evidenced by the surviving material culture of the first millennium BC. The unit also examines the resonances of the ancient Aegean still evident in contemporary Australia.
