What is Classical Archaeology?


Classical Archaeology is the study of the great Mediterranean civilisations of Ancient Greece and Rome, as well as Egypt and the Middle East.

Classical archaeology is offered as an elective within the Bachelor of Archaeology (BArchaeol) programme and the BA at Flinders University. All Classical topics, however, are taught by staff at the University of Adelaide. For more information about studying classical archaeology at Flinders (via the University of Adelaide) you might like to contact Dr Margaret O'Hea at the University of Adelaide, or discuss your options with the Director of Studies.

Please note that Flinders University does not formally teach fieldwork in classical archaeology.


For a list of elective topics that may be chosen for those students interested in Classical Archaeology, please refer to the current Department of Archaeology handbook.
