Unit Introduction
Welcome to the unit
Welcome to ANCH 322/522: Bronze Age Greece and the Aegean.

Welcome to this unit. I hope you will enjoy the time you spend on it. This unit will provide an overall introduction to Bronze Age Greece and the Aegean — in particular the Minoan and Mycenaean civilisations.

Primary source material produced by the society being studied is of especial importance and reference will be made to artifacts and documents constantly. We expect you to use both artistic and documentary evidence in your work, and have included those texts that we think useful, as well as a selection of artistic and archaeological evidence, in this booklet.

This Handbook is complemented by the Humanities Policies and Guidelines document. Make sure that you have a copy of this handbook.

I do hope that you find the unit challenging, stimulating, informative and, above all, enjoyable. If you have any difficulties or queries please contact us.

We look forward to working with you throughout the unit and to receiving your work.
