This lecture serves as part two of a series that examines the beginnings of Greek civilization, starting with the impact of the Minoans, the Mycenaean Age, the rise of Sparta and Athens, the epic struggle with Persia, and the self-destructive Peloponnesian War. The major components of Greek culture – sculpture, drama, history, and philosophy – will be studied along with other legacies handed down through the ages to become pillars of Western civilization. Previous series attendance is not required.  Dr. Hayes serves as program head of history/political science at Northern Virginia Community College, Manassas Campus and holds a Ph.D. from Florida State University with a focus on early modern British history with minors in Medieval Europe, Classical Greece and Rome, as well as the Middle East. She is currently the honors chair for the Manassas campus.
