This Master's degree in classical archaeology allows you to undertake advanced study of the archaeology, history and cultural legacies of Ancient Greece and Rome. You will explore classical culture within the broader context of the ancient Mediterranean world and you will learn how to use material culture to better understand ancient societies. The course will also give you the key archaeological skills you need to retrieve and evaluate material evidence. You will learn in a culture of active research, with teaching and supervision from world-leading academics working at the cutting-edge in their fields. The course starts with an exploration of the broad themes of classical archaeology, including methodologies and interpretative approaches to the material past. While grounding you in the key theoretical approaches, the degree will also develop your practical skills, with an optional fieldwork module that covers major techniques and approaches to excavation. Another focus is on contemporary debates about the reception and interpretation of classical history and culture, particularly the meanings that have been attached to antiquities, which is a particular research strength in the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology. You will develop the research skills and knowledge you need to research and write a dissertation on the subject that particularly interests you, under the supervision of one of our academic experts. If you wish, you can go on to pursue archaeological research at MPhil/PhD level or professionally and independently.
