Introduction to Ancient Greek History: A Free Online Course from Yale

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. Find the texts used in the course below. More infor­ma­tion about the course, includ­ing the syl­labus, can be found on this Yale web­site.

Intro­duc­tion to Ancient Greek His­to­ry will be added to our col­lec­tion of Free Online His­to­ry cours­es, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion, Intro­duc­tion to Ancient Greek His­to­ry: A Free Online Course from Yale.
