MCR502 Archaeology of Athens I
Professor: Dimitris DAMASKOS
The lectures present ancient Athens, as this is known mainly by its archaeological remains. Their examination begins with the early ones from prehistoric times and ends at the high classical times (450-430 BC), when classical Athenian civilization reaches its peak. Athenian topography, as well as Athenian art and society are the main focus of the lectures, which present Athens’ establishment as the main political and cultural power into the ancient Greek world.
