LIT 058 - (LT) Literature and Archaeology of the Roman Countryside

Semester Hours: 3
Summer
This is an intensive three-week course. The first two weeks are conducted, seminar style, on campus, with reading and discussion of Roman historians, philosophers, and poets in English translation. The student will also learn about the history of Roman Italy, from the archaic to the Augustan periods. The focus will be on the Roman countryside and the Roman villa as cultural symbols and sites for the development and transformation of Roman identity. The third week will be intensive archaeological fieldwork in Poggio del Molino, Italy, where students will experience firsthand the excavation of a Roman villa. Exposure to the literature and history of the period will be complemented by an introduction to archaeological theory and methodology.
