20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module explores written and archaeological sources for ancient Greek settlement in the Black Sea and their interaction with indigenous inhabitants, as well as the political, economic and cultural relationships Athens developed with the region. This module considers the evidence for early Greek contact with the Black Sea region, the nature of early Greek settlements and the dynamic interactions these settlements had with each other and with Athens during the peak of its political power in the Classical period. The themes of trade and exchange, competition and diplomacy and death and commemoration are considered.
