Roman Art and Archaeology: A Free Online Course from The University of Arizona

From David Soren at The University of Arizona comes Roman Art and Archaeology, a course whose objective is “to provide an overview of the culture of ancient Rome beginning about 1000 BCE and ending with the so-called Fall of Rome.” The course description continues: “We will look at some of the key people who played a role in Rome, from the time of the kings through the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. We will also focus on the city of Rome itself, as well as Rome’s expansion through Italy, the Mediterranean, and beyond.”

Dr. David Soren is Regents Professor of Anthropology and Classics with the University of Arizona and Director of the Orvieto Institute in Umbria, Italy. He holds a B.A. in Greek & Roman Studies from Dartmouth, and an M.A. in Fine Arts and Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology from Harvard University.
