Course content

We supervise research across an exceptionally wide range of topics in Greek, Roman and Near Eastern history, archaeology and art, as well as Greek and Latin language, literature and thought, late antique and Byzantine studies, and reception studies.

We have a strong record of attracting major research grants. The Department has recently received funding from the AHRC, the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust for major projects including Digitising the Prosopography of the Roman Republic, The Art of Making in Antiquity: Stone Carving and Carvers in the Roman World, Ancient Inscriptions of the Black Sea Region, and Classics & Class.

Other areas of activity we have been developing include Greek and Latin literature, reception studies and Byzantine and Modern Greek studies.

We have successful ongoing research projects in collaboration with the College's Department of Digital Humanities and the British Museum.
