Course number : HS114   
« back to classes page
Let’s go back to visit the Middle East at a time long before any of the present issues existed. The great Mesopotamian cultures of Assyria and Babylon dominated what is now Iraq thousands of years ago as the world’s early superpowers. This six-week course will examine them in their heyday, moving from the 21st century BCE to the 6th century BCE. It will provide you with an overview of the political, cultural, and social history of the Assyrians and Babylonians and provide insight into the ancient mindset, contributing to your understanding of the bene?ts and challenges of that region.
