This course spans approximately 2,000 years, 17th century B.C. to A.D. 400, and focuses on sites and discoveries falling within the "Classical" Millennium, from 8th century B.C. - the traditional date for the first Olympic Games and thew founding of Rome - to the reigns of Hadrian and Marcus Aurelius in A.D. 2nd century, when Greco-Roman civilization achieved its fullest integration and widest impact. Like Caesar's Gaul, the course is divided into three parts: the evolution of Classical archaeology from a pastime for collectors and antiquarians to a mature science: case studies of important of 12 important excavations; and an overview of Classical civilization from an archaeologist's perspective, with focus on the detailed reconstruction of ancient life made possible by archaeological discoveries.
