Classical Roman civilisation 1B
This course explores the world of Imperial Rome, building upon material studied in Classical Roman Civilisation 1A, but it can be taken separately. Starting with the death of Rome’s first emperor, Augustus, we will explore his legacy as it played out during the reigns of the four Julio-Claudian emperors who followed him, ending with the death of the notorious Nero (AD 14-68). Key topics will include imperial activity abroad, developments and highpoints in art, architecture and literature, and the changing roles of Imperial women in politics.
