Summary

This joint honours degree enables you to combine modules in Ancient History from the Department of Classics and Ancient History with those offered by the Department of Archaeology. The balance is broadly equal, but by Year 3 you can, if you wish, weight your choice of modules more to one side than the other; the dissertation provides a further opportunity to concentrate your studies in an area that particularly interests you.**Year 1**Compulsory modules:Archaeology in BritainCities in Antiquity.Archaeology:Choose one module from:Applied Archaeological MethodsDiscovering World PrehistoryMedieval to Modern: An Introduction to the Archaeology of the Medieval to Post- Medieval WorldAncient Civilisations of the EastOR a language module.Ancient History:In Ancient History, you’ll take two interdisciplinary modules that serve to give you a grounding in the central periods of Greek and Roman culture.

The department of Classics and Ancient History currently has exchange links with universities in Belgium (Liege), France (Bordeaux), Germany (Tubingen, Munich), Greece (Athens), Italy (Bologna, Rome, Milan, Vercelli), the Netherlands (Free University, Amsterdam, Groningen), Spain (Seville) and Switzerland (Fribourg). Students interested in studying abroad should apply to transfer to the European Studies course after their first year of study.**Archaeology:** We currently have links with the universities of Gothenburg (Sweden), Mainz (Germany), Bordeaux (France), Vienna (Austria) and the Free University of Berlin (Germany), as well as Bergen (Norway) and Koc (Turkey). Like the Year Abroad these exchanges involve inserting an extra year into the degree between the second and final years. If your application for a place is successful, you’ll transfer from the three-year to a four-year version of the degree. Students also have the opportunity to participate in excavations run by members of staff and colleagues of other universities at various places around the world.We review course structures and core content every year and will publish finalised core requirements for 2022 entry from September 2021. Please note the list of optional modules available in any year vary depending on available teaching staff.
