Course Description

This course examines the development of the art and architecture of the cultures of ancient Nubia through what we have learned from archaeology and how that evidence has helped us create the picture we now have of the culture and history of the birth and development of art and civilization in the Nile Valley.

While I learned quite a bit during this course, I found that it is best accompanied by several other archaeology courses discussing other regions during the same periods. As such, the accompaniment of FutureLearn's MOOC on Archaeology of Portus and EdX's ChinaX mini-course series offered a lot of context, as the three areas were connected by trade around 49 C.E. My only issue was that Professor Lacovara seemed so nervous when he was reading the scripted lessons. However, this was not enough to take away from the material being learned about the conflicts faced by Nubia over time and the eventual fall of the empire. The videos were accompanied by the script for each week in PDF, but there are some visuals used in the videos that make them the primary focus of study. Students will not only learn about the changes in Nubian society over the various eras, but will also gain some insight into archaeological practice over time.

Archeology is a relatively new subject to me and I found this an intriguing opportunity to visit something other than an Egyptian subject. Course was relatively lightweight and the lecturers were not particularly inspiring as they were mostly carried out by Dr. Lacovara sitting in front of a desk.
