Course Description: This course surveys the arts of Greece and Rome and their territories from the Aegean Bronze Age through the Roman Imperial period. Special consideration will be given to topics such as the figure in Greek art, the Parthenon, the development of Roman architecture with a special focus on building types, and Pompeii. Another aspect of this course will be the use of several WWW sites as part of our study. The Web offers an enormous array of sites for all areas of ancient studies; notable examples include "Perseus" for ancient Greek art and the Romarch collections. We will use these and several others as part of our exploration of certain special topics.
