HIST 103A CM - From Village to Empire: The History of the Roman Republic, 750-44BCE

This course explores the history of Rome from its foundations as a small village in the middle of the 8th century BCE to its establishment as an imperial power over the Mediterranean world through the 1st century BCE. Rome’s expansion from a city-state to a world power and the social, political, and economic implications of this expansion will constitute the primary focus of the course. But we will also examine material culture, religion, social customs, sub-elites, and women, and the dynamics of cultural interaction in the ancient Mediterranean. Students will concentrate throughout the course on the primary evidence and the ways in which historians use literary and material sources to uncover different perspectives on the Roman past. First part of a sequence on Roman history.
