The study of classical civilisation is understandably a wide ranging and far-reaching one encompassing a variety of subjects; history, literature, linguistics, numismatics, epigraphy, archaeology, art, architecture and philosophy. Classical civilisation is the term applied to the civilisations of Greece and Rome. In terms of a time scale, Classical Greece is usually considered to be the 5th and 4th centuries, specifically the period between the end of the Persian Wars to the death of Alexander the Great: 479-323 BC. The Roman period is more difficult to pin down to specific dates. Most universities will start with the beginnings of Roman expansion into Italy in the early 5th century and run to Alaric’s sack of Rome in 410 AD. This course is designed to allow you to study at your own pace and is designed to develop an interest and understanding of Classical Civilisation.
