MA Archaeology of the Roman World


Course Description

The MA Archaeology of the Roman World aims to provide a unique interdisciplinary programme for understanding the Roman Empire in the wider context of its neighbouring societies.

Crossing traditional academic boundaries (e.g. between Roman studies and prehistory, and between archaeology and ancient history) it is taught by a concentration of specialists that is exceptional in the UK. Contributing staff are active in research ranging from Roman-period economies, societies and religions to warfare.

Besides a detailed grounding in research skills, the course comprises extensive analysis of settlement and cultural systems. Options allow students to specialise in key aspects of Roman-era and related studies.
