C102

This course is an examination and evaluation of the ancient
Romans based on their traditions, ways of life, and on their
intellectual and artistic achievements.  Our approach will be both
chronological and topical, emphasizing the archaeological remains.
This is a lecture-format course, and it will generously draw on
slide illustrations of the remains and archaeology of ancient Rome.

There will be four multiple-choice examinations, each of
which will count one-fourth of the course grade.  Some questions
will be based on slide identifications.  The fourth examination will
be given during the final examination period, but will not be a
comprehensive final.

Texts:
Boren, H.C. Roman Society: A Social, Economic, and
Cultural History
Kleiner, Fred.  A History of Roman Art
Lombardo, Stanley. Virgil: Aeneid
