CLAS 0075 / HIST 0075 Augustus to Hadrian

This course explores the history of the Roman Empire from the first emperor, Augustus (died 14AD), until Hadrian (117-138AD).  It considers political, social, cultural and economic questions, as well as foreign wars and diplomacy, during the height of the Empire’s power and prestige. Sources include writings by Tacitus, Suetonius, Josephus and Pliny (read in translation), complemented by material evidence such as Trajan’s column, Hadrian’s wall, and the buried city of Pompeii.
