Synopsis

This course examines the rise and fall of societies from the Neolithic period to the start of the European Renaissance, focussing on cultural change, political and religious beliefs, and, in particular, social structures. Students will gain historical knowledge across a broad period, and will acquire analytical and research skills.

The course introduces the basic principles of historical methodology. It complements the course ANT1000: World Archaeology which employs an anthropological approach, and HIS2103: World History from 1500 CE. The course is particularly suited to Arts and Education students, and is ideal as a general elective for all those seeking an introduction to the study of world history.
