Content

Ancient History at St Andrews is an exciting and wide-ranging subject that covers not just the ancient Greeks and Romans but also some of their neighbours, such as the Persians and Phoenicians. Key specialisms at St Andrews include ancient religion, gender, historiography, economics, warfare, empires,
cities and urban living.

An Ancient History degree will take you on a fascinating journey to the heart of the complex and varied societies of the ancient Mediterranean, which are both deeply familiar and
