Course summary

Overview

Research in Classics and Ancient History at Liverpool centres on the study of ancient Greek society, culture, politics, philosophy, economy, religion and medicine, ancient Greek and Latin literature, the literary cultures of the Roman empire, the politics, economy and administration of ancient Rome, and receptions of Classical antiquity in the modern world.

The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology is internationally reputed for its world-class interdisciplinary research in diverse fields ranging from the origins of humanity and Old World prehistory to the cultures, languages and texts of the late antiquity and the archaeology of the historical periods.

Expertise in Classics and Ancient History stretches from the archaic Greek world through to late antiquity with particular strengths in the study of Ancient Greek society, culture, politics, religion and medicine, philosophy, Ancient Greek and Latin literature, the literary cultures of the Roman empire, the politics, economy and administration of Ancient Rome, and receptions of Classical antiquity in the modern world. Our long-standing research into the economies of the Greek, Egyptian and Roman worlds create a strong interdisciplinary research cluster on Ancient Economies combining expertise from Classics & Ancient History and Archaeology.

With individual specialisms ranging from papyrology and epigraphy to digital humanities, and from literary analysis to the interrogation of visual and material culture, as a group we ask fundamental questions, challenge orthodoxies and established narratives, and strive to be innovative, bold and open in our investigations into the ancient Greek and Roman worlds.

With 42 academic & research staff and over 60 postgraduate researchers ACE forms one of the largest hubs for the academic study of the human past in the UK.

We welcome research proposals that match those of our researchers and that fall within and beyond around research themes.
