II semestre Ferrara dal Feb 24, 2020 al May 29, 2020.

Learning outcomes

Il corso magistrale mira a fornire le conoscenze e gli strumenti di base per lo studio approfondito e l’avvio dell’attività di ricerca nell’ambito della storia e archeologia del Vicino Oriente, attraverso l’analisi esemplificativa di una tematica storico-archeologica di ampio respiro che consenta di illustrare l’applicazione di diversi approcci metodologici e avvii all’uso delle fonti e della letteratura secondaria.


The course is organized in two sections.
The first one aims to provide a brief summary and an overall periodization of the history of the Near East from the Neolithic to the first millennium BC, focusing in particular on the Levant, with the purpose of providing the geographical and chronological framework for the topics covered specifically in the second section;
The second one focuses on the origins and development of the Phoenician civilization along the Levantine coast, on its history, the problems encountered to reconstruct it and the different archaeological, epigraphic and secondary sources used; subsequently architecture, artistic trends, material culture and main archaeological sites will be analyzed, with reference to the interrelationships with other peoples of the ancient Near East and to the expansion in the Mediterranean.
