Department of Archaeology


Set up and run by postgraduate students since 2016, the Aegean Archaeology Group works to bring together researchers from the Department of Archaeology and the Faculty of Classics in support of interdisciplinary approaches to the history of the lands in, around, and in contact with the Aegean Sea. This collaborative initiative aims to facilitate dialogue across traditional academic boundaries and strengthen ongoing research through the promotion of comparative scholarship.

The group organises talks from invited speakers and holds discussion sessions on key themes or research topics, meeting on Monday lunchtimes once a fortnight during term. 

Our events are free, and all are welcome to attend.

For more information about our events, including copies of the suggested readings for the discussion sessions, please subscribe to our mailing list: 
Future events will be announced here.
