Joint Honours Ancient History and Archaeology

Ancient History and Archaeology are both concerned with understanding social, political and cultural experience in the past. This course offers you the opportunity to range across these two broad disciplines. You will study the Greek and Roman worlds by working with historical and literary documents alongside the material remains of ancient sites and artefacts. There are opportunities to participate in archaeological fieldwork and in study tours to classical sites, and you can, if you wish, take these as modules for credit.

This course is combined with another subject chosen from a range of options within the area of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. No knowledge of ancient languages is necessary for this course.
