Our approach to this subject is comprehensive and challenging. We don’t just focus on the Greek and Roman worlds – we also examine the cultures of neighbouring regions. And we consider the whole range of data. By systematically exploring data such as material remains – which sometimes complement and sometimes contradict the textual record – we aim to deepen your understanding.
Our focus on neighbouring regions allows us to explore themes of cultural interaction, identity and mobility. Rather than consider each subject separately, from a single point of view, we want you to understand how societies and cultures have developed in relation to each other, over time.
We’re interested in the potential of modern techniques to explore ancient history, so we encourage you to be innovative. We want you to bring a fresh perspective to the subject, to think, question, challenge, and think again.
