Art and Arch in Ancient Greece

What can a building—or a piece of art—tell us about a culture, a civilization? With this week’s set of CERCA Slides, students examine multiple sources to learn about ancient Greece and its legacies.

Archaeological evidence—from wall paintings of monkeys to domestic floor plans—offer insights into everything from ancient trade networks to the role of women in the city-state of Athens.
