Description

The great strength of Ancient History is that it allows you to specialise in the study of the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Persia, Greece and Rome that lie at the very heart of European culture and the cultures that border the Mediterranean.

At Kent, you can study the history of these ancient civilisations inside one programme, or you can follow a broader pathway that engages the study of history with that of ancient literature or archaeology.

You also have the opportunity to learn Latin or Ancient Greek, which are taught at beginners, intermediate and advanced level. Much of European civilisation grew out of the classical world so it is not surprising that it is still highly relevant today. Canterbury, as a late Iron Age settlement, a Romano-British city, an Anglo-Saxon town, and a centre of early Christianity, is an excellent base for studying different cultures, with visits to local sites and museums as well as to museums in London and Paris. There are also opportunities for archaeological fieldwork both locally and further afield.
