WEB RESOURCES:

The 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.

For instructions on how to set up your computer to gain access to the local version of Perseus, visit the Department's webpage on Perseus.
