Roman Frontier Studies

The Roman Frontier Studies MA inspires students to think about the human past from a variety of thematic and analytical perspectives. The course makes full use of the rich archaeological North East landscape with regular study trips and fieldwork. Students also carry out field studies in Rome and the Lower Rhine. Through period-based, practical and theoretical modules students will develop an understanding of the interpretive approaches that Roman archaeologists adopt and the methodologies and sources available during investigation.
