This course is being developed in the context of the AncientCities Erasmus+ project. This course run is a first version of the course, available only for the participants of the Aarhus springschool in April 2019.

In this course you look at several aspects of ancient cities and will discover that these are still valid in modern cities. Moreover, you will see that some of our modern cities are truly ancient cities. In eight modules various aspects of ancient cities are highlighted.

Every modules is organised similarly. First we introduce the topic by setting the scene, indicate relevant keywords and quotes from present and past. We show maps of the cities that are relevant for the module and illustrate various aspects with relevant images. Next, experts explain about the topic in one of more videos. After you have studied the introduction and watched the videos, you can test your knowledge by doing the assignments and the quiz. Difficulty level of the assignment and questions is indicated. Finally, we provide a reading list with basic and advanced reading and relevant website for you to explore and extend your knowledge on the topic.

Problems with subtitles of videos

If two sets of captions appear when you select CC on the video player, YouTube and your course might both be providing captions for the video. This problem can occur when YouTube is the host service for the video and your YouTube account settings for playback are set to always show captions. To correct this problem, select CC again or change your YouTube account settings.
