A survey course, with extensive on-site teaching, covering the art and archaeology of Greece from prehistoric times to the end of the Classical period. Its purpose is to introduce the student, using whenever possible the primary sources (monuments, art and artifacts) of the ancient civilizations of the Aegean and Greece: Minoan, Mycenaean, and Classical Greek. The schedule of class visits to sites, monuments and museums is coordinated as much as possible with school field trips. Classroom lectures and the readings provide the historical context for the monuments and artifacts students are instructed on.
