We are one of the largest centres for the study of the classical world in Europe, equally strong on both Greek and Roman sides, in history, literature and language alike.

In addition to comprehensive coverage of central and canonical subjects, we have expertise in a number of rarer special fields, including:

  • Epigraphy
  • Papyrology
  • Ancient Science
  • Linguistics

We are particularly proud of our large and vigorous community of international students; our research fellows and permanent staff; our inclusiveness; our weekly departmental lunch; our lively and sociable weekly research seminar; our international conferences; and the high quality and exceptional delivery of our postgraduate programmes.
