Course content

Research within the School of Classics covers the study of classical antiquity, its history, culture, economy, trade, languages and literature. Deeply ingrained in our heritage our research also explores their enduring influences on contemporary culture and life.

Research is organised around four key strands: i) Narrative, ii) Rome and the West, iii) Economy and Materiality, and iv) the Ancient Near East. The cluster’s strengths in these areas have been informed by the University’s key strategic priorities around issues of cultural heritage and languages. These are priorities for knowledge transfer with stakeholders such as museums, heritage and cultural tourism agencies with whom we work, such as the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, the Cyfarthfa Castle Museum, the National Library of Wales, the Cypriot Department of Antiquities. Detailed information can be found on each research theme and researchers below.
