Classics and Archaeology in the Byzantine world 

The Centre for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies (CLABS) is a joint venture between the Department of Archaeology and the Department of Classics at the University of Nottingham.

It has the aim of fostering interest in the Late Antique period in western Europe and the Byzantine Empire in the Balkans, north Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Key aims and expertise

The Centre for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies (CLABS) offers an interdisciplinary approach to studying the Late Antique and Byzantine Empire broadly during the period c. AD 300 to AD 900.

The Centre was established in 2007 by members of the Archaeology and Classics departments, which have strong traditions in the field.

The Centre hosts an annual series of research seminars, inviting UK and international scholars to talk at CLABS sponsored events at the university, with a longer-term objective to hold conferences arising from the research interests of relevant staff members.

These staff members have published extensively on a range of topics within Late Antique and Byzantine studies, and include distinguished scholars of these subjects such as the Honorary President of the Centre Wolf Liebeschuetz, Emeritus Professor of Classics.
