About this course:

This class is a fun and educational exploration of the early periods of art history—from the dawn of the great civilizations in the Near East through the Middle Ages in Europe. We begin in ancient Egypt and examine its pyramids, royal sculptures, tomb paintings, and the funerary art of Tutankhamen (King Tut). From there we probe the treasures of Mesopotamia, Assyria, Persia, and Greece—with an emphasis on Athens and the Golden Age. Then onto the Roman emperors through Constantine the Great, the Byzantine empire, Irish manuscripts, and the Court of Charlemagne.
