Course Description

From the CTY Course Catalog (1996):

Students in this course study the ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations. Students explore life between 2000 B.C. and A.D. 300 by reading a composite of epic tales, mythology, and folklore. They also examine the art and architecture of each culture and century. They explore what these artifacts reveal about aspects of ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian life, such as government, social class, daily life, and religion.

The course involves both individual and group projects. Such projects could range from reports on Roman fashion and dress to designing an Egyptian temple. Field trips to art museums are also planned for this class.
