A survey of the material culture of the Greek world, from the Persian invasions until the death of Alexander the Great (ca. 500-323 BC). Works analyzed in their social, political, and archaeological contexts. Topics include: urbanism and the Greek house; the concept of the artist in antiquity; the archaeology of death; the divine image. Study of monuments, artifacts, and sites integrated with the reading of primary literary sources. Frequent hands-on experience with artifacts in the Princeton University Art Museum.
