Midterm Classics Study Guide Important Dates in Greek Culture It is important to have an understanding and knowledge of the chronological framework for Greek culture. Although scholars continue to debate the exact dates of many events, the following dates will generally suffice for this course. A word about abbreviations: This site uses the abbreviations BCE and CE. BCE means "before the Common Era," as opposed to CE "the Common Era." Your instructor may prefer to use BC ("before Christ") and AD ("in the year of our Lord"). The abbreviation ca. (or c.) means "circa" and is used to refer to an approximate date. Most dates in Greek culture are approximate, including those on this web site. I. PERIODS ca. 1100-900 BCE Dark Age (1000-900 BCE is also called the Iron Age) ca. 900-700 BCE Geometric Period ca. 700-500 BCE Archaic Period ca. 500-323 BCE Classical Period ca. 323-146 BCE Hellenistic Period ca. 146 BCE - 500 CE Roman Period II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
