The Archaic Period in ancient Greece (c.600-480 BCE) is one of the most fascinating in the development of sculpture, architecture, and vase painting. Spurred by the development of the Greek city-state and expanded trade with Egypt and the Near East, the Greeks boldly experimented with the forms and images. This course will serve as an introduction to the art and archaeology of this time period, exploring the kouros and kore sculptures, the development of temple design and decoration, and Greek black-figure pottery.
