Ancient Landscapes and Ancient Skies - 20071


We see the same sky and inhabit the same earth as the ancient Egyptians, Athenians, Mayans and Islamic thinkers did thousands of years ago. But unlike the modern world, ancient worlds do not separate earth from sky: for them, to understand human life in its natural environment is to understand its relation to the sphere of the heavens. Students in both courses in this two-course connection will learn to view the earth and sky together through the lenses of different ancient cultures.
