HIST 306 Classical Greece and Rome

Classical Greece and Rome have served as a model for political, social, and cultural ideas throughout modern history. What were the Greek polis and the Roman Republic really like? Who had a say in government and who was left out? How did both Greek and Roman societies change when they expanded their empires across the Aegean and Mediterranean? This course investigates these questions through the evidence left behind by contemporary writers and by everyday people in the archaeological record.
