The Department of Classics has been undertaking pioneering research for over 100 years. We are renowned for our insights into the cultures, histories, societies, languages and religions of classical civilisation, and their relevance to the modern world.
At Reading we're working to extend the boundaries of the subject. We're developing new approaches that explore previously understudied areas across a range of ancient societies and cultures. Our research embraces a wide variety of cutting-edge methodologies and disciplines.
