Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This traveling seminar explores the history and archaeology of one of the largest metropoleis of the ancient world. Straddling the Peloponnese and mainland Greece, Corinth was part of several empires. A major harbor city, it attracted immigrants from all over the Mediterranean. An urban center from prehistory through the middle ages, it housed major pagan, Christian and Muslim sanctuaries and religious venues. The excavations offer unique insight into an ancient city's urbanism, infrastructure, civic, religious and private life in the longue durée; and into the inner workings of empires.

When Offered Spring.

Comments Students enrolled for full credit will make a subsidized excursion to Corinth during Spring Break. Auditors are welcome to join our discussions in Ithaca. Students wishing to participate should contact Prof. Anderson (bwa32) and Prof. Alexandridis (aa376).
