Taught by Yale professor Donald Kagan, this introductory course in Greek history traces “the development of Greek civilization as manifested in political, intellectual, and creative achievements from the Bronze Age to the end of the classical period.” In it, students “read original sources in translation as well as the works of modern scholars.” You can watch the 24 video lectures above, or find them on YouTube. The lectures also appear on iTunes in audio and video. More information about the course, including the syllabus, can be found on this Yale website.
