CLAS 420 – Archaic Greek Sanctuaries
This course therefore concentrates on the evidence for Greek sanctuary sites between 1000 and 600 B.C. We examine the excavated material from numerous sanctuary sites, including architectural remains (temples and/or altars), votive offerings of bronze and clay, and any other evidence revealing religious practices during these formative years. The role the sanctuaries played in society is also considered with a view to their political, social, economic and spiritual implications for Archaic Greek life.
CLAS 465 – Greek Pottery: Craft and Society in Ancient Greece
The development of Greek pottery from the collapse of the Mycenaean empire to the close of the classical period. Special attention to shapes, decoration, function, and artistic and technical skills.
