ANHS3601 - The Mediterranean World and Civil War

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Kathryn Welch


In 88BC, Mithridates of Pontus challenged Rome by organising rebellion in Roman Asia. Simultaneously, Rome itself was beset by the first of three civil wars. A century of chaos across the Mediterranean had begun! We will study the age of Pompeius, Caesar, Cicero, Antonius, Octavian and Cleopatra from east to west in order to see how each side affected the other. The rich evidence allows us to develop a range of skills in and approaches to historical research and analysis.
