Classical Studies gives you the chance to explore some of the worldâ??s finest literature and to investigate the histories, cultures and societies of ancient Greece and Rome. A rich variety of material â?? literary and documentary texts, painting and sculpture, complex archaeological sites â?? reveals a world of poets, historians, artists, politicians, emperors, priests, administrators, slaves, soldiers, aristocrats and ordinary men and women. It is a world of lasting cultural importance, and understanding the ambitions, beliefs and lives of its people enriches understanding of your own world and of what it is to be human. The ancient world has been studied at Liverpool since the 1880s, during which time the university has built up excellent library resources and outstanding archaeological collections in our Garstang Museum of Archaeology, one of the largest teaching and research museums in the UK. The Museum brings together around 40,000 artefacts from Egypt, the Near East, Greece, and Prehistoric Europe and includes impressive collections from sites such as Al Mina and the Temple of Artemis Orthia at Sparta. Liverpool is one of the few universities to have such a resource that is used extensively in teaching and research.
