CLU22136/CLU33136 Archaeological Study Tour

Experience – walking through a Mediterranean landscape, sitting in a classical theatre, or marvelling at the exquisite beauty or technical skills behind the pottery and sculpture in a museum – is a key way to bring the ancient world vividly to life. This module gives you the opportunity to engage with and experience a region of the Mediterranean world through participation in a structured study tour which is undertaken in the summer prior to the academic year to which the credits contribute.
