This course is amazing and there are no words to express how great it is. Professor Ressler's knowledge of Classical Roman and Greek engineering, art, and history is incredible. His models are truly works of art and CAD designs are beautiful. Professor Ressler is entertaining, brilliant, talented, and truly one of the WORLD'S BEST TEACHERS. If you take this course, you will be guaranteed never to think of the ancient world in the same way again.
