Course Summary

The Ancient History and Archaeology programme combines two distinct but overlapping disciplines which use a range of different techniques and sources to examine the past. You will consider the main issues of Greek and Roman history, society and political life; and explore the ways in which Greeks and Romans thought about their own past. Your Ancient History modules will complement the Archaeological aspects of your studies, as you learn archaeological techniques, the chronology of archaeological periods and the main themes from early prehistory to the Middle Ages. If you choose to study Ancient History and Archaeology, you will study 60 credits per year from the Ancient History programme (including the core modules Greek and Roman History) and 60 credits from Archaeology. For Ancient History, all texts are usually taught in translation, so you don’t have to study Latin or Greek language modules unless you choose to.
