ANCS 350H Topics in Ancient Studies When Worlds                   3 credits
          Collide                                           

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  Course  also
          listed  as Honr 300C.  Course will meet in
          Honors  220.   In the  late eighteenth and
          early   nineteenth   centuries,   America,
          France,  Greece all  experienced political
          revolutions   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 they
          were  actively and deeply engaged with the
          distant   past.   Earlier  excavations  at
          Pompaii  adn 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 mastadon thathe displayed in
          the  New World's first museum.  Napoleon's
          invasion of Egypt led to the discovery and
          decipherment  of  the  Rosetta  Stone  and
          sparked the first wave of Egyptomania that
          was  to  sweep  over  the  western  world.
          Traditional education in the classical and
          Romantic  poetry  together  inspired young
          men  from  both  England  and  America  to
          measure, accuragely record, and to 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  interdisciplinary;  our
          goal  will  be to learn  about pioneers in
          rediscovery  who  lived  an  age  that saw
          great  progress both in the humanities and
          in the sciences.
