Ancient History and Archaeology BA (Hons)




What will I learn?

Our BA Ancient History and Archaeology will enable you to combine the science of archaeology with the culture and history of ancient civilisations in your studies. The study of people lies at the heart of our courses, such as exploring how the Roman Empire used architecture as a political statement. Yet we also use scientific techniques to examine ancient objects, human remains and landscapes. You will study ancient Mediterranean empires alongside the archaeology of Britain, Western Europe, the Greek and Roman worlds and the Near East. Throughout the course, you'll have opportunity to study ancient languages and to conduct expert-led archaeological fieldwork, gaining knowledge of two complementary approaches to the past while gaining key skills in analysis and interpretation. Study with us and you'll explore artefacts, architecture, ancient texts and beliefs using our well-equipped laboratories, our own departmental teaching collections, and the exclusive archives and curatorial expertise of Manchester Museum.
