A continuation of the Ancient Military History series, this class will spend five weeks of lecture and discussion following Alexander the Great from northern Greece to the edges of the world. We'll look at who he was, why he invaded Persia, and how exactly he won every battle in his extraordinary life. We'll unpack the story of his life, chart his path across Persia (including battle simulations), and examine the mysterious circumstances of his death. Join me for lively discussion and...
Initially, students will learn about Alexander's rise to power and subjugation of Greece. We'll then move on to his invasion of Persia to "liberate" Greek colonies, and how his motivations morphed into ones of punitive conquest. Finally, we'll look at the geo-political ramifications of his march across the near east to India, and his sudden death.
There is no official homework, but optional readings may be recommended depending on in-class discussion.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While this is a history class, it is a history of warfare -- and a primitive kind at that. We will maintain an academic perspective, but we will discuss how and why people kill one another. We'll keep it PG.
