Mode of study

The core module materials are provided in print and online, but other study material is provided in an online format only. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, video clips of 3-20 minutes (all with subtitles and transcripts), and audio clips of 1-35 minutes (all with transcripts). Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials consist of the module introduction, the four ‘blocks’, the Visual Sources booklet and two books of Textual Sources.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events, including face-to-face tutorials, day schools and ‘meet the author’ online forums. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a considerable number of visual sources, including photographs of sculptures, paintings, mosaics and other ancient artworks. Examining and interpreting these visual sources is an important part of the study of this module; however, image descriptions are provided for all visual sources, and non-visual alternatives (normally a passage of written text) are available for substitution in assessed work. 

Finding information

You may be encouraged to search for, and make use of, third party material online, particularly during the preparation of your End-of-Module Assessment (a 3,000 word essay). However, the Learning Outcomes of the module can be met without using third party material.

Specialist reading material

There is no specialist reading material used on this module. Visual sources are a key part of the module, however. Please see ‘Diagrams and other visual content’ above.


This module has five Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, and an End-of-Module Assessment which is also submitted online. 


You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment. 


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.
