This unit is an introduction to the great civilisations of the old world in North Africa, Asia, and the Mediterranean from ca. 3000 BC-AD 300. We will explore the major achievements and characteristics of these rich cultures, as well as the fascinating interplay between them. To understand ways in which archaeologists read the past, students will study and examine ancient material evidence from some of these civilisations.
