This unit examines the relationship between cinematic visions of antiquity and the writing of ancient history. In particular, it aims to look at how different schools, ideas, and methodologies in ancient history are reflected in cinematic production. Topics to be discussed include the role of historical consultants in film production, archaeological remains and the creation of 'the antique', cinema as an alternate site for the production of 'ancient history', and the utility of filmic metaphors for the practice of history.
