Uitgebreide vaknaam Aegean Prehistory: The World of the Palaces
Leerdoelen The students must:
- Know the main historical developments in Aegean prehistory, especially the formation and operation of the palatial systems
- Understand the debates in the field, and be able to take a position
- Understand the methodological and theoretical problems underlying the
interpretation of the archaeological evidence
Omschrijving This course will present the main developments in Aegean prehistory, but will place the emphasis on the palatial civilizations, i.e the Minoan and Mycenaean worlds.
The main objectives of the lectures (hoorcolleges) are: a) to present different facets of the archaeological evidence (settlement archaeology, burial evidence, material culture); b) to discuss the evolution of the discipline in terms of methodology and interpretive approaches, and c) to discuss the interpretive and methodological problems that arise from the archaeological material.
The seminars (werkcolleges) will consist of writing assignments and oral presentations by the students on a specific aspect or historical problem which has not been covered in the hoorcolleges. The students will be provided with bibliography for this task.
