Ancient Greece: City and Society

By Dr Gillian Shepherd

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


This subject deals with the cultural history of the ancient Greek world through both textual sources and the material evidence of art and archaeology. The period covered runs from the Iron Age world of Archaic Greece through to the late Classical period (roughly from the 8th century to the 4th century BCE). We will concentrate mainly on Athens and mainland Greece, but we will also focus on the Greek expansion into other parts of the Mediterranean world (Sicily and South Italy) in the process of colonisation. Historical texts will be combined with literary sources and archaeology to explore the physical nature of ancient Greek cities and social issues such as the position of women, ethnicity, sexuality and slavery in the ancient Greek world.

Slides don’t work

The audio is fantastic, however the slides with images no longer work, so there is a lot of imagination that has to accompany this audio.

Great Course!

Excellent material. For anyone having trouble viewing the slides, they’re available by going to the handout episode for the slides you want and then going to the episode website.

The slides really don’t work

Great podcast, and I thought it was just my iPad that didn’t show the slides. Still, I so enjoy it and the other shows by La Trobe!
