Course summary

On MA Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, study of the history and material culture of the classical civilisations will be at the core of your studies. You will develop a range of disciplinary skills used by historians, archaeologists and art historians. The programme requires the careful interpretation of scanty but complex written and material evidence to understand peoples who are chronologically remote but highly significant to the modern world. In addition to the study of the Greek and Roman civilisations from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity and Byzantium, you will have the opportunity to study other ancient peoples and civilisations such as the Etruscans, the Persians and the Carthaginians. You will gain an understanding of Graeco-Roman society within its geographical context and will analyse and evaluate a wide range of texts, works of art, artefacts, archaeological sites, and other material evidence. The programme will challenge you to confront the sometimes rather divergent pictures of the classical world given by the different bodies of evidence - textual and material - and is thus both intellectually demanding and intrinsically interesting. There will also be opportunities for gaining practical skills in excavation, for which there may be some funding available.
