Ancient History and Archaeology

Ancient History and Archaeology (VF14)

This joint programme enables you to combine modules from our Ancient History programme with those offered by the Department of Archaeology. The balance is broadly equal, but by the time of the third year you can, if you wish, weight your choice of modules more to one side than the other; and the dissertation provides a further opportunity to concentrate your studies in an area which particularly interests you. In the first year you will take the two core modules entitled Remembering Athens and Monuments and Memory in the Age of Augustus, which will introduce you to classical Athens and early imperial Rome, seen from a variety of perspectives (not just historical) and different forms of evidence, and prepare you for a wide range of more specifically historical modules about politics and society in the ancient world available in your second and third years. Besides the two core modules in the first year, you will be able choose one further module from those available for the Ancient History programme.

Look at the table below to see the lay-out of the Ancient History and Archaeology programme; but remember that some modules may change in future years, and what is set out here is only a guide.
