CLASSICAL ARCHAEOLOGY OF ANCIENT GREECE AND ROME

by | Read by John Hale

History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Hearing his enthusiasm, one can tell that Professor Hale is passionate about his subject: the discovery and understanding of ancient civilizations. From descending into old wells to diving for shipwrecks, he brings the excitement of discovery to his classes. Beginning with the birth of modern archaeology, he introduces the methods of transforming pieces of ancient objects and structures into a sophisticated understanding of their meaning. However, the beauty and clarity of his language suffer some disappointing inconsistencies as he drops many important words to inaudible mumbles, requiring listeners to intuit what the lost terms might have been. The course includes a detailed syllabus, which contains outlines, suggested reading, questions, a glossary, and a bibliography. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2009]
