Roman Art and Archaeology

The objective of this course is to provide an overview of the culture of ancient Rome beginning about 1000 BCE and ending with the so-called "Fall of Rome". We will look at some of the key people who played a role in Rome, from the time of the kings through the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. We will also focus on the city of Rome itself, as well as Rome's expansion through Italy, the Mediterranean, and beyond.

What people are saying

dr. soren

I have learned a lot more about the Roman world, it's history and people I enjoyed Dr. Soren and Lala, as well as his guest speakers!

More time was spent with Dr. Soren sitting behind a desk or standing at an empty site, usually reading off the teleprompter.

I didn't realize how much of a Archaeology rockstar Dr. Soren was until I watched the BBC documentary!

Truly appreciated Dr. Soren's engaging and pleasant lecturing style - his passion for the subject is truly contagious and inspiring.

Dr. Soren was engaging and informative.

Thank you, Dr. Soren!

Dr. Soren explains very well all the subjects, making them very easy to be followed and understood.

Dr. Soren is really good and very, very nice person.The only thing I miss, is more weeks of course to enjoy even more this subject.

I will miss Dr. Soren and Lana when I enroll a new course after I finish this one.

Dr. Soren & The University of Arizona really went out of their way to make this a great course :) VERY COMPLETE I enjoyed it very much, thank you very much Pr, that was fun at the same time as clear and interesting.

Dr. Soren is a great professor.

roman history

I strongly recommend this course of Archaeology because it is made with a great love of Roman history and it is very interesting.

David Soren is a passionate orator and it is a pleasure to listen to him and the others collaborators, which are very passionated with Roman history too.

While this course moves through 1,000 years of history relatively quickly, it provides a very firm and clear understanding of the hows and whys of Roman history through archaeology and Roman art.

Lots of Roman history included.

Solid course for those interested in Roman History.

I totally recommend to everyone looking for a broad panoram on Roman history.

Wonderful course on Roman history and archaeology.

so much

I loved this course so much.

But so much better.

Requiring a short few paragraph essay answers to a few questions at the end of each week is so much better than just relying on multiple choice questionnaires.

Great class and I learned so much new information from the lectures Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about ancient Rome.

This MOOC is much more than the course title suggests.

Answers to quizzes are wrong, and although students reported this months ago, no corrections have been made.Professor is on camera much more than necessary and many of the images provided are not the best.
