ARCA2614 - Contact and Exchange in South Italy

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Ted Robinson

Description

Ancient South Italy existed at a vital crossroads between the Eastern and Western Mediterranean. From the arrival of the earliest settled farmers in the 7th millennium BC to its conquest by the Romans, the region experienced repeated waves of migrants, visitors, colonists and conquerors, and developed a distinctive and vibrant culture as a result. The Unit will begin its survey in the Neolithic period, but concentrate especially on the Greek/Italian colonial interactions of the first millennium BC.
