CLASS 280 - Introductory Ancient Greek History *3 (3-0-0)

This class is on the list of approved UAlberta Global Courses that count towards the Certificate in International Learning.

Description:  Have you ever wondered if the Homeric king Agamemnon, leader of the Greek forces in the Trojan War, actually existed? Was Alexander the Great really great? Why did the Persian king Xerxes attack Greece? Who were the Spartans, and what was unique about them? How did the Athenians acquire such a large empire? Who was Pericles and what did he accomplish? Why was the Parthenon in Athens built? Why did the Athenians and the Spartans attack one another in the Peloponnesian War? Why did the Athenians execute the philosopher Socrates? You will learn the answers to these and any other questions you have ever had about Ancient Greece in CLASS 280, a historical survey of the civilization that shaped western culture. This course will provide a historical survey of the civilization that shaped western culture. To the ancient Greeks we owe our concepts of history, philosophy, drama, and political science. We shall cover the history of the Greek world from its beginnings in the Bronze Age with the Trojan War, through the Persian Wars and the ensuing rivalry of Athens and Sparta, until the death of Alexander the Great. We shall examine Greek history primarily through the eyes of the first great historians, Herodotus and Thucydides, who shaped the writing of history in ancient Greece (in English translation). Not open to students with credit in any two of CLASS 371, 372, and 373 (prior to 2005-2006).
