ANHS5905 - The Mediterranean World 51-30 BC

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Kathryn Welch

Description

In 51 BC, Cleopatra became queen of Egypt on the death of her father Ptolemy Auletes. In 49 BC an expected civil war broke out in Rome. The two incidents were to become intricately entwined as the civil wars of Rome moved to the East. Only by moving with the Romans will we understand the mechanics of their civil wars and the deep-seated changes which resulted from them. This course offers a chance to study the crisis in Mediterranean world in the second half of the 1st century BC from both points of view and to see how two ends of it were affected by each other.
