Winter term 2022
This five-week course will give students an introduction to five areas of Roman material culture: architecture, art, social artifacts, materiality and social spaces (e.g., housing), and a special subject for the final session on ancestral legacy imagery.
The course covers a broad historical timeline, introducing students to Roman material culture developments over different timeframes and geographies, while also highlighting other cultures’ influences upon Roman material culture.
Classes will take place on Tuesdays at 7.00-8.00pm GMT starting on 11th January 2022 for five weeks.
The course will be led by Mark McCahill, a postgraduate researcher in Classics at the University of Glasgow, specialising in Roman material culture as it relates to memory and legacy. Mark connected with Classics later in life as a mature student after a long work life in Sales and Marketing, with the twist being that his love of Classics came from taking Latin as his third subject at university, thereafter falling in love both with the ancient worlds of Greece and Rome, and following his passion for lifelong learning.
