Ancient History at Bristol allows you to explore real-world issues like politics, the creation and spread of myths, and our relationship with the environment, by studying the dynamic cultures of the Ancient Mediterranean. As Bristol is close to ancient sites like Bath and Caerleon, you will enhance your studies with field trips, and we also run regular trips to cities rich in ancient heritage, like Rome or Pompeii. Being an ancient historian is about developing knowledge, learning to analyse historical evidence, and making effective arguments. These are skills highly prized by employers, so our students go on to succeed in a variety of fields, from teaching to technology, banking to broadcasting. With our broad range of subjects and types of assessment, you will have the opportunity to explore your creativity, follow your ideas and research independently, and build innovative team projects. Whether you are completely new to the subject or you have been inspired by previous study, you will discover new ways of exploring the ancient Mediterranean. Studying Ancient History at Bristol will expand your knowledge of Greco-Roman societies while enriching your understanding of the challenges facing us today.
