Antioch through the Ages – Archaeology and HistoryCourse Cancelled

Alan M. Stahl

Back to "Fall 2016" courses

Antioch was unique among the great cities of the classical world for its position at the crossroads between the Mediterranean Sea and the Asian continent and for being a new foundation of the Hellenistic age that shrunk almost to insignificance in the modern era. Students in this course will get exclusive access to the archives and artifacts of the Princeton Antioch excavations of the 1930s. In the 2016 course, the focus will be on the theatre excavated in the Daphne region overlooking the city of Antioch, site of pagan performances well into the Christian era; students will study and report on its architecture, decor and use.
