Program description

On MA Ancient History you will study the history of ancient Greece and Rome. You will also be able to study other ancient civilisations that came into contact with the Greeks and Romans, such as Judaea or Persia, as well as the Byzantine empire that succeeded the Roman empire in the east. The programme will thus enable you to contextualise Graeco-Roman history within its wider Mediterranean context. Religious, social, economic, political and cultural history will all come into play; sources will range from great historical writers such as Herodotus and Tacitus to inscriptions and papyri, and the results of archaeological excavation.
