    It allows you to specialise, but also encourages you to branch out into related disciplines and to consider interdisciplinary approaches.

    You will choose two core Archaeology modules, at least one in Classical Archaeology. You will also study a third core module in Research and Scholarship

    You will also choose three optional modules, at least two of which should relate to Classical Archaeology. Options available may include:

    Byzantine Archaeology and Material Culture
    Funerary Archaeology
    Greek Material Culture
    Full module descriptions are available below.

    You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, with one-to-one expert supervision.

    Research and Scholarship

    This module ensures that students across the range of sub-disciplines in Classics and Ancient History acquire the necessary generic and specific skills needed for further research. These will include advanced bibliographic skills, familiarity with theoretical and critical approaches and schools of thought, technical skills such as techniques of epigraphy or numismatics where appropriate. Delivery will take place in seminar formats, with sub-disciplines offering different break-out sessions as needed.

    You will also choose three optional modules, at least two of which should relate to Classical Archaeology pathway. Options available may include:

    Byzantine Archaeology and Material Culture

    This course offers a framework, partly empirical, partly conceptual, whereby to engage with the problems of investigating and interpreting Late Roman and Byzantine archaeology. It introduces all the major types of evidence (artefactual, topographical, monumental, environmental), deploying them to test reassessments of major debates in Late Roman and Byzantine Studies. Tutorial reading develop introduction to archaeology as an intellectual practice within Late Roman and Byzantine historical enquiry, focusing upon archaeology´s developing contributions to economic, cultural and politico-administrative history, and evaluation of best practice in excavation, survey, recording and publication.

    Funerary Archaeology

    This module presents a critical review of theoretical approaches and interpretative themes in contemporary funerary archaeology, and examines the central significance of this field of study in current debates in world archaeology. As a core module for the Cultural Archaeology pathway, it uses this evidence-rich field of study to explore the relationships between cultural ideals, values, social agency and symbolic representation. There will be particular focus on a range of interpretative themes, including social interpretation, cultural identity and personhood, ritual practice, and past belief systems. It will draw widely on cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary case studies in archaeology and cognate disciplines such as anthropology and history, and will be available to students on the other MA/MSc Archaeology pathways and other CAL PGT programmes as an option.
