ARCH 325 - Life and Death in Pompeii

(3.00)
The town of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE, has yielded enormous insight into Roman social life.  This course will investigate the people who lived and died at Pompeii through the houses, streets, tombs, skeletons, food, and objects they left behind.  It will also interrogate how we come by this knowledge, examining the long history of excavation and tourism that makes Pompeii a window onto our relationship with the past. Recommended Preparation ARCH 201  or ANCS 202
