Roman History and Archaeology

This course is designed for students who wish to adopt a twin-tracked approach to the past by using both historical and archaeological evidence. The aim of the programme is to provide research training in preparation for further study for a PhD or for a career outside academia that requires research skills. A key focus of the MA is on the cities of the Roman Empire, including the capital, Rome. There is also the possibility of specialising in the study of age, gender and ethnicity, as well as taking modules in the wider history and archaeology of the Roman period.
