As part of Adam Smith’s course “The Rise and Fall of ‘Civilization’”, students are examining the historical and archaeological assumptions embedded within the algorithms of one of the most popular video games of the last decade: “Civilization”.  Over the course of 3 game sessions, students will examine the elements of what makes a Civilization, according to contemporary game designers, and compare this to archaeological studies of ancient civilizations from around the world.
