The Classical Mediterranean
This programme offers an intensive and challenging forum for tracing, debating and interpreting the archaeology and history of the Classical Mediterranean world across the Greek and Roman periods (approx 7th Century BC to 5th Century AD), as well as investigating its reception in the modern world. The course moves away from traditional art-historical and structuralist approaches, and from traditional narratives of emergent and developing powers in the Classical Mediterranean, to question the ways in which we reconstruct the classical past, to identify the interplay and debate between sources (physical and written), and to interrogate current understandings and perceptions of Greek and Roman societies across the span of the Mediterranean. Our integrated exploration of texts and material culture within a range of spatial and landscape contexts enables far fuller recognition of the societies and economies that shaped classical antiquity.
Normally a good 1st degree (2.1 or higher) in Ancient History, Archaeology or cognate disciplines, or the equivalent for overseas or European applicants.
Core modules: classical antiquity: traditions, approaches and debates; encountering the classical world: includes a study tour (currently Greece); dissertation (for students studying for the MA).
Assessment is through essays and project work. Students are encouraged throughout to develop their transferable skills, including IT and oral presentation. MA students write a 15,000-word dissertation undertaken between May and September. Students may elect to do an extended, 90-credit dissertation where doctoral study is the main target.
