Module overview

Classics, Christianity and Islam: these are the three cultural forces which have shaped the modern west. All three impacted on the Mediterranean between between 1000BC and AD1000, and can be traced through the archaeology. In this module, you will have the opportunity to learn about the advent of Greek, Roman, Christian and Islamic culture, and the key characteristics of each. Using a series of regional case-studies, you will be able to explore how these impacted (or not) on specific groups of people, thinking about issues of cultural negotiation, religious interaction, and power.
