This was a great course, it was great to be out 'on location' with the archaeologists and Lorenzo Nigro. There was also a great selection of reading material which offered more in-depth information.

wonderful explanation along with good slides and maps and incredible readings\n\nbut the main organization was my favorite part because I learned so much about ancient cities as well as Motya

Bom curso, o professor é querido, mas muitas vezes pareceu mais uma série de leituras de relatórios arqueológicos do que uma aula de história

Great course. I enjoy the most when a Proffesor talks about his passion, like in this case. 5 stars if the Proffesor spoke better English.

Interesting and informative. Both wide ranging in detail and narrow in outlook since in mainly concentrates on one site. Enjoyed this.

Please try concentrating on the clarity of the subtitles. It was too difficult to follow the professor without the correct subtitles.

It was very interesting. It was sometimes hard to understand what the Professor was saying and the written notes didn't always help.

Thank you Prof. Nigro! I learned a lot from this course! The only regret is that the subtitles are not 100% correct.

Fascinating topic, and Professor Nigro was inspirational in his enthusiasm and professionalism. But those transcripts!! No sign of having been proof-read, let alone edited! So many instances of [INAUDIBLE] or [FOREIGN]; words spelt so incorrectly that the meaning was unclear - for example, the course discussed the Phoenician settlement of Motya, but there were at least 5 different spellings of this name; the names of the various pottery types were impossible to decipher. Professor Nigro's accent was a bit tricky, but his enthusiasm made up for that. Yes, I know you have to use a computerised tool to produce these transcripts, but surely someone could take a bit of time to proof-read? What the computer produced was a complete mess, an insult both to learners, and a betrayal of Professor Nigro's professionalism. I would have given 5 stars had the transcripts been better.

The pictures of the artifacts, the maps and views of the site are all excellent. I found it challenging at times to get the jest of what was being said. Never the less I enjoyed the history lesson.

The course is very interesting, but the instructor really speaks a very poor English and sometimes it is not easy to understand what he is saying.

Aimed at experienced archaeology students who want a deep-dive into this one particular topic.

The videos are excellent but the choice of lectures and the quiz need more work.

Pro: - Some facts presented are interesting.
Cons: - Most content is too related about a specific dig find, too few general context.
-Prof has strong accent and English subtitles were *extremely* bad (did a machine do that???).
-Video cutting and script felt done overnight: some bad cuts, some segments are repeated on several occasions in the video
-Female students shouldn't be treated as decorations!
