Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took this class while taking English 121, and overall this class had much more intensive writing. Do not take this class if you are not a strong writer, and do not take this class if you can't sit down and write a 8-page paper on something you couldn't care less about.
You do learn a lot about ancient life, but it is from a fairly dry perspective. Expect to learn more about day to day life and the political effect of wars.

Advice for students:
Just don't see ancient history and 100 level course and think easy course and gladiator battles. It'll be more about the economics of ancient societies and lots of writing.
