          Collide                                           

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  In  the  late
          eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries,
          America, France and Greece all expereinced
          political   revolutuions   that  marked  a
          fundamental  breakwith  the  recent  past.
          Individuals  such as  Thomas Jefferson and
          Napoleon  Bonaparte were directly involved
          in those revolutions, but at the same time
          theywere  actively and deeply engaged with
          the  distant past.  Earlier excavations at
          Pompeii  and Herculaneum  had revealed how
          much  of  the  past  the  earth mightstill
          hold;  those excavations  also represented
          the  birth  of  scientific  archaelogy and
          they  even contributed  to the development
          of Charles Lyell's geological theories. In
          America,    Thomas    Jefferson    himself
          excavated   a  prehistoric  burial  mound,
          while  Charles Willson Peale recovered the
          skeleton  of a mastodon  that he displayed
          in   the   New   World's   first   museum.
          Napoleon's  invasion  ofEgypt  led  to the
          discovery  and decipherment of the Rosetta
          Stone   and   sparkedthe   first  wave  of
          Egyptomania  that  was  to sweep  over the
          western  world.  Traditional  education in
          the  Classics and Romantic poetry together
          inspired  young men from  both England and
          America to measure, accurately record, and
          and   restore   ancient  architecture,  to
          search  for  (and  appropriate)  classical
          Greek  statues, and to  fight in the Greek
          War for Independence.  In this seminar, we
          will  explore the exploration  of the past
          that   took   place   during   an  age  of
          revolution,  romanticism, and rediscovery.
          Our  approach  will  be interdisciplinary;
          our  goal will be  to learn about pioneers
          in rediscovery who livedin an age that saw
          great  progress both in  the humanties and
          in the sciences. Also listed as HONR 300G.
