The Heroic Age of Greece
CCIV 277
Fall 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: ARCP 277

This course will study the earliest periods in Greek culture through both archaeology and written texts. Archaeological evidence will be the primary evidence for constructing a picture of the society and culture of the early Greeks; the epic poems of Homer (ILIAD and ODYSSEY) and Hesiod (WORKS AND DAYS will be the textual sources. Some of the topics to be discussed include the reality and date of the poet Homer, the origins of Greek art, the historicity of the Trojan War, early Greek religious practices, early Greek relations with non-Greeks and the formation of a Greek identity, and the transition from the Dark Ages to the archaic period of Greece.
