About this course

This course will begin with a review of the origins of warfare in the eastern Mediterranean and Levant around 9,000 BC, and then follow its development through to the arrival of the Minoan culture on Crete around 2,700 BC. Around 1,750 BC they were then joined by the Mycenaean culture on Mainland Greece as a regional superpower. By 1,450 BC the latter had conquered the former. The course will then cover the widespread societal collapse in the region around 1,250 BC, the subsequent phenomenon of the Sea Peoples raiding around the eastern Mediterranean and their interaction with the Hittite and Egyptian empires, and finally the onset of the Greek Dark Ages. A key element of this course will be Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and the story of the Trojan War.
