Our research


Our research is of exceptional quality, with the History department being rated third in the country, and the Archaeology department rated as 100% for its research environment. Research informs our teaching and you’ll be taught by experts in the field, with our world-class research forming the core of the curriculum you will study.

During lectures, seminars, practicals and informal contact time with us, you will have access to the primary sources we are using to write these cutting-edge histories, as well as benefiting from the latest books, databases, and journals acquired to conduct our research, which make it into our libraries for you to use for your own work.

Ancient History is a broad church and the interdisciplinary nature of the Southampton degree means you can learn cutting edge techniques and approaches to apply to the evidence, allowing you to create new insights into the lives of past people's.
