Department of Classics and Archaeology

Society and mobility

People are the most widely distributed species on the planet and we have transformed practically every part of it with our migrations, and with the ideas, technologies and material cultures that accompanied them.

Movements of people and their impacts on culture continue to be a highly charged arena of political discussion.

Our department has particular specialisations in the history of religion, in the history of production, specialisation and trade, and in examining the changes which have arisen from historical migration and cultural contact.
