The Hellenistic and Roman Near East
0.5 Credit

An investigation of the archaeological evidence for the spread of Phoenician colonies across the Mediterranean and of Greek towns in the Levant after the conquest of Alexander the Great. The transformation of this region into the Roman Province of Arabia will be demonstrated by a study of the rise of the Nabataeans in Palestine and Transjordan and the creation of Roman towns and Jewish settlements (e.g., archaeology of the Dead Sea Scroll community) during the reign of King Herod.†
