Module overview

In this module you will consider the relationship between the ancient world and the modern world. We will consider how new approaches to ancient societies have been developed in response to modern social and political developments. We will also look at examples where the ancient societies have been used in modern political contexts such as the ideology of the nation. We will also consider the ancient world in popular culture, and how this might distort popular perceptions of the past.
