This course is an awesome introduction to the great archaeological sites of Greece and Turkey. I was just in Greece 2 weeks ago and I wish I had taken this course before my visit. I would highly recommend all of Hale's courses. John R. Hale is an incredible talent. His enthusiasm for archaeology and ancient sites is inspiring. In my opinion Hale is the greatest, currently teaching professor on the subject of archaeology. This course is only an introduction, but it absolutely inspired me to be more inquisitive about ancient history.
