The Classical Mediterranean

This postgraduate degree offers an intensive and challenging approach to the study of the Classical Mediterranean worlds across the Greek and Roman periods. The course questions the traditional ways in which we reconstruct the classical past, and interrogates current understandings and perceptions of Greek and Roman societies across the Mediterranean. A key part of the course is our interdisciplinary approach, drawing from both history and archaeology. We will equip you to work with different classical sources in combination, including literary texts, epigraphy, material culture, landscape studies, architecture, and visual art. The course will enable you to reflect critically on the economic, social, political, cultural, artistic and religious developments and interactions between the various regions and powers of the Classical Mediterranean. You will develop a high level of competence in the cultures of the Greek, Hellenistic and Roman Mediterranean. Archaeology and Ancient History at Leicester has a high concentration of relevant staff expertise and specialisms which is exceptional in Britain. Our expertise ranges across the classical world, including Italy, North Africa, the Aegean, Anatolia and Syria, offering you a coherent perspective of the whole Mediterranean. This course will equip you with the skills needed to go on to conduct doctoral research or enhance your career prospects, whether in archaeology, related or other professions.
