This course focuses on the literary and artistic works from successive periods in the history of ancient Rome to provide students with a broad overview of Rome's development and culture. Our sources include a wide range of texts (poetry, drama, history) and artifacts (architecture, sculpture, painting, daily objects). As we examine these "words" and "works" we seek to uncover the attitudes, values, and ways of seeing and thinking about the world that make each period of Roman history unique. Knowledge of Latin is not required.
