CLAS 338 - Pompeii


FDR: SS4
Credits: 3 in fall-winter; 4 in spring

The site of ancient Pompeii presents a thriving Roman town of the first century AD, virtually frozen in time by the devastating eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. In this course, we examine Pompeii's archaeological remains-public buildings, domestic architecture, painting, artifacts, inscriptions, and graffiti-in order to reconstruct the life of the town. We also consider religion, games and entertainment, politics, and the structure of Roman society. Benefiel. Planned Offering: Winter 2015 and every third year.
