Monumental projects, such as temples, tombs, fortifications, as well as miniature creations in luxurious materials will be examined within their larger political, social, religious, technological, and economic contexts in Ancient Greece. Athens, Delphi, Olympia, Crete, and the Aegean are just a few of the celebrated places explored in this course.
