      The Deep Dig: Discover Ancient Rome, Pompeii, and Herculaneum - Part 1

      There is no description for this event.

      Cost: Payment required - Taught by Dr. C. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge of the Mediterranean Section and James B. Pritchard Professor of Archaeology, this four-session online course will introduce you to the archaeology and art of ancient Italy, especially Rome, Pompeii, and Herculaneum. We will begin with the foundation of the city of Rome in the 8th century BCE through the mid-Republic, when Rome’s conquest of the Mediterranean completely transformed the face of the city. The second session will focus on Rome during the Late Republic and Early Empire (early 2nd c. BCE–early 2nd c. CE), when the boundaries of the empire stretched from Britain to the Persian Gulf. The best evidence for Roman civic and domestic life has been uncovered in the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE, which will be the theme of the third session. The final meeting will deal with Rome from Hadrian to Constantine, especially the rise in construction of temples dedicated to the so-called mystery cults. $175 General | $125 Member
