Classical Greece

For  this Discussion, you will post at least three times – 1) an initial  post, and then 2) two replies to two classmates who posted answers to  different questions. You must post first before you will see the postings of your classmates.

1) Initial Post

Please choose one of the following  questions, and post your response of a minimum of 150 words. Be sure  that your comments are original, thoughtful, and well developed. This  discussion will be open for the whole course, so check back frequently:

1) Go to Parthenon Marbles  and pick a side to this argument: Should the “Elgin Marbles” be  returned to Greece? Please support your argument with a scholarly set of  logical supportive points and avoid using only an emotional reaction to  answer this argument.


2)  Etruscan culture seems very different from other ancient cultures when  it comes to gender roles. Discuss some similarities or differences  between the Etruscans and another culture in this course regarding the  roles of women and men. You may have to do some outside research, so  make sure to cite your sources.


3) The  Romans are easily the most famous culture from the Ancient world. What  single enduring quality of the Romans is still used today as something  to emulate or to learn from? In answering this question, please choose  one example from art, architecture, politics, philosophy, religion, or  literature to show this enduring quality.
