On to Rome!

Rome will be divided into three chunks: 1. Etruscan to Empire, pp. 224-245; 2. Empire, Part I, pp. 246-267; 3. High and Late Empire, pp. 267-end.

Rome 3, next class! 

There's the Basilica/Pantheon file I promised below.

Then on to Early Christian (One chunk). The Early Christian and Byzantine Presentations and Flash cards are ready to download and use.

 For those who wish to purchase the text, Art History Second Edition by Marilyn Stokstad, I recommend the two volume, hardback, slip covered edition. The price is about $95.00; however the two paperback, school text volumes are $72.50 apiece. Remember, there is NO requirement to purchase the text.
There is also a huge one volume hardback edition for about $65.00. It's a backbreaker to carry but less expensive.

There are also used versions available, some at good prices. 

These texts may be found at any of the major on-line book stores. Here is a link to the boxed set at

And to the backbreaking edition.

--One volume hardback.

 I highly recommend having a copy of a book called  The Annotated Mona Lisa. Students say this is the most useful review tool available for the AP Art History test.. She also has a book entitled The Annotated Arch about architecture. I think it's good, but I haven't really used it that much. 

Here is a link to the title at You can choose either new or used, all at a good price..
