most valuable electronic resource for this course is Perseus,
a database of linguistic, literary, historical and archaeological
materials related to the study of ancient Greece. You will
use Perseus extensively in this course, not only as a means
of exploring the cultural setting of Herodotus and his subject
matter, but as well to strengthen your linguistic skills.
All of Herodotus' text is available in English and Greek on-line
via both the web and CD-ROMs on Skidmore's server, and each
word in the text is parsed and linked to an electronic Intermediate
Greek-English Lexicon. You should use these tools as you
prepare the text for each class meeting, for they will
allow you to eliminate any confusion you might have about
the form and meaning of each vocabulary word.
