Capstone Unit: Greece, Rome, Late Antiquity - AHIS339

The theme of this unit is the value and exploitation of ancient (re)sources (artifacts) as well as their pitfalls for ancient history. Through a series of weekly seminars in the first half of semester, students will be exposed to a different variety of ancient evidence, and will come to understand its importance for, and impact on, our knowledge of the Greek, Roman, and Late Antiquity. Particularly emphasized will be numismatic evidence, in which your major research paper, due at semester's end, will be anchored. This focus on ancient resources will give all Greek, Roman, and Late Antiquity students flexibility to pursue their own interests in papers while adding to their knowledge gained during the degree program and offering a reflective approach on all work done during that time.
