ARCA2615 - Etruscans and Romans

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Ted Robinson


The Etruscans were one of the superpowers of the Archaic Mediterranean, but the reconstruction of their civilization falls mainly to Archaeology, since so little Etruscan literature survives. This unit will begin by surveying Etruscan civilisation, concentrating on social, economic, political and artistic developments. Similar themes will be pursued for the Romans, but the scale of the enquiry will increase vastly as the Romans take control of Italy, the Mediterranean, and lands far beyond.
