COURSE DETAILS:

This course introduces students to the major Greek archaeological sites from the Bronze Age to the Hellenistic period, through a chronological and historical survey of their art and architecture. Emphasis is placed on the history of the excavations and the individuals who played a part in the shaping of the field, as well as the manner in which ancient Greeks used and interacted with their material remains. This is achieved through a series of case studies, which discuss each of the sites and their monuments in relation to the social, cultural, religious, and political practices and institutions that were associated with them. Special interest is also given to the evolution of Greek town planning, as well as Greek settlements in the diaspora (Near East and Magna Graecia).

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
