Archaeology provides a vivid understanding of how the past informs our present.  The department specialises in classical archaeology of the Mediterranean (Greece and Italy), the Middle East (Jordan, Mesopotamia, Arabia, Iran), Western and Central Asia, Cambodia and Australia, with annual fieldwork taking place in most of these areas.  Another focus is public archaeology and cultural heritage.
