What was it like to live in Athens, at its height in the 5th and 4th centuries BC? What did it mean to be a woman or a slave? If democracy brought a degree of political equality for the citizens, how different were the lifestyles of the rich and poor? This course will combine the evidence of literature with archaeology and topography to address these and other key questions about living in ancient Athens.
