Uncovering the Past

Offered: not offered in 2003

Special note: may be taken as a History or Tourism unit

Unit description:

Examines the process of Greek and Roman archaeology as well as the various meanings invested in the material remains through the ages. Greco-Roman styles have had a significant impact on the art of Europe and beyond, often denoting cultural, imperial and intellectual dominance. The influence of antiquity has involved both the transferral of artefacts from their place of origin, as well as the conscious adoption of classical aesthetics. This unit investigates the successive waves of archaeologists, tourists, plunderers and architects who have sorted through the rubble, and asks: why did they do it? what were they looking for?
