Compulsory modules include Understanding Ancient Egyptian Culture, Collecting Egyptian Antiquity, and Egyptian Language. Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology enjoys an invaluable asset in its purpose-built Egypt Centre, which houses about 3,000 objects from Ancient Egypt. This impressive and important collection illustrates more than 4,000 years of human development from the prehistoric to the early Christian era and plays an integral role in our teaching.
The University Library is particularly well stocked with original texts, literary and documentary, with basic works of reference and with secondary material of all kinds. It subscribes to a wide range of general and specialist periodicals.
Online access to external bibliographies and citation indexes is available. Resources include JSTOR Dyabola, TLG, Patrologia Latina and Teubner Latin texts online, and the Gnomon database.
All our postgraduate research students are automatically members of the University of Wales Institute of Classics and Ancient History. The Institute promotes conferences and seminars involving staff and postgraduates from Cardiff, Lampeter and Swansea.
Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology also has a thriving postgraduate seminar, which meets weekly.
