Ancient, Classical and Medieval Studies at Winchester focuses on the history and archaeology of ancient, classical and medieval Britain, Europe, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Students study topics as diverse as Bronze Age civilisations; Classical Rome; the Anglo-Saxon era; Vikings, Normans and Charlemagne’s Empire; the Crusades; the Age of Discovery; and Late Medieval England and France. The programme trains students in the disciplines of both archaeology and history, enabling them to pursue careers in either subject.

Programme structure

Modules in Year 1 provide a sound understanding of each discipline, the methodology of each subject and its applications. Analysis of documentary or excavated evidence helps to promote a good grasp of archaeological techniques, historical approaches, chronological time periods and, in particular, the importance of teamwork, personal research and presentation skills.

Year 2 is more wide-ranging, offering a series of optional modules whereby students can select to study a variety of diverse topics or make a focused selection of modules that follow a particular theme. Study in Year 2 aims to hone skills in presentation and

In Year 3, students select a limited number of topics at a more concentrated and advanced level and typically study through extensive use of primary source material, applying all they have mastered in the dissertation.

Students interested in the archaeological dimension of the programme can opt to attend the summer training excavation for two weeks during the first summer vacation and should ensure that they have accommodation available during late May and June.
