Wonder and Diversity at Alexandria

Lecture no. 16 from the course: Cities of the Ancient World

Wonder and Diversity at Alexandria

Taught by Professor Steven L. Tuck | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Built directly on the seacoast and a major transportation hub, Alexandria is the first massive, cosmopolitan city we know of in antiquity. Its lighthouse was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the variety of artists’ workshops and its ethnic diversity made Alexandria the Greek cultural center.
