BA (Hons) Classical Studies at Lincoln offers students the opportunity to become part of a vibrant academic community in a genuine Roman city. Lincoln was founded as Lindum Colonia, a Roman colony, and has a wealth of Roman history and heritage above and below ground. Traffic still travels through its third-century gate, the Newport Arch. The University sits on the Brayford Pool, a Roman inland port connected to the River Trent by a Roman canal, the Fossdyke. Scholars at Lincoln research and teach in exciting areas, from the creation and reception of ancient art and culture to literacy in Late Antiquity, from the making of Roman London to the life and legacy of Constantine, from the foundation of Roman London to the fall of Constantinople. We aim to share our research and support students as they access unique resources for their own research, including the amazing artefacts in The Collection archaeological museum, to which we have privileged access. Classical Studies explore a range of subjects that reflect the variety and richness of research and teaching within the School of History and Heritage and the College of Arts, with experts in history and archaeology, the history of art and architecture, literature and cultural studies, visual and material culture, philosophy and gender studies, cultural and digital heritage, and conservation.
