    Before taking this module you must pass at least 2 modules from {AN2002, AN2003, CL2003, CL2004} or ( pass ME2003 and pass at least 1 module from {AN2003, HI2001, MH2002, MO2008} )

    This module, which draws on archaeological material from around the world, is divided into two sections. The first is a series of seminars and lectures on the central practical concerns of archaeology: the way in which the type of excavation affects the resulting evidence; methods of studying sites and artefacts; how to publish archaeological material, and the importance of conservation. This will give a general grounding to enable students to understand archaeological reports, and to apply this understanding to other parts of the Honours degree. The second part will address the important contribution of theoretical archaeology to the discipline, while also elucidating the practical applications and relevance of theory. There is no particular concentration on any one historical period and material is chosen rather to illustrate a broad range of methods and issues.

    This module considers the theme of identity from an archaeological perspective. Chronologically and geographically, it focuses on case studies and evidence from the Mediterranean in the first millennium BCE. The module begins with a reflection on the practitioners of archaeology themselves, considering how issues of class, gender, and race have influenced the production of archaeological knowledge. It then examines core aspects of identity and evaluates the extent they can be evaluated in the archaeological record. The first part of the module focuses on characteristics of personal identity; topics will address age, gender, and social identities. The second part of the module investigates markers of identity that are traditionally difficult to recognise through material evidence, such as ethnicity and race. Subsequently, the focus turns to the development of composite and group identities. The final topic seeks to locate marginalised peoples and groups with unknown identities

    The gods are encountered at every turn in the Greek world: in monumentalized sanctuaries, and in household, rural and roadside shrines; in the hyperreal form of the cult images of Pheidias and in ‘aniconic’ cult objects. This module explores the different categories of sacred space in the Greek world, focussing especially on the archaic and classical periods, and examines both how worshippers’ experiences were shaped by the environments in which rituals were performed, and how the sanctuaries themselves reflect wider factors (including political culture, Greek engagement with non-Greeks, and disease). The module draws on a variety of geographical contexts, looking beyond the well-known shrines of Delphi and Olympia to Sicily, Magna Graecia and Egypt; it also will make use of a broad range of archaeological, epigraphic, iconographic and literary evidence, to examine the Greek experience of the divine and the role of religion in shaping identity and wider society.

    This module examines the history and archaeology of the city of Rome from its earliest beginnings to the fifth century CE. Several themes are pursued, in particular the view of Rome as a centre of power and patronage, the capital of empire and residence of kings and emperors. Rome's physical development, the problems of feeding and administering such an immense ancient city, the architectural and artistic implications of rulers' aspirations, and the urban religions are all explored.

    This 20 credit module provides a survey of painting, sculpture and architecture in Europe and beyond from c. 1280 to c.1580. It follows a roughly chronological course, from Giotto at the beginning of the fourteenth century, to Dürer, Michelangelo and Titian in the sixteenth century. Attention will also be paid to the issues relating to the wider artistic situation of the Late Medieval and Renaissance periods, including those of patronage, iconography, materials, technique and types of commission. Although the primary focus of the module is on Western Europe, lectures also address how European art formed alongside non-Western traditions, including the important role played by global trade.

    This 20-credit module provides a survey of Baroque, Rococo and Enlightenment art in Europe and beyond. We begin with a study of seventeenth-century Italian art and architecture, discussing artists such as Gianlorenzo Bernini, Francesco Borromini, Annibale Carracci and Caravaggio. From Italy the focus shifts to Spain, Flanders, and Holland in order to explore portraiture, allegory and historical painting looking at artists such as Velazquez, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Rembrandt. We will also touch upon issues of artistic identity and the status of women artists during the period. A number of lectures are then dedicated to the parallel tradition of Islamic art, and the baroque beyond Europe’s borders, extending our understanding of the Baroque diaspora to a global context. Following thematic lectures on collecting and printmaking, the focus shifts to art in France. The module ends with lectures on the classical tradition in British art and architecture and the Enlightenment. Although the primary focus of the module is on Western Europe, lectures also address how European art formed alongside non-Western traditions, including the important role played by religious missionaries, global trade and imperial conquest.

Throughout, visual objects and material history are examined using analytic tools including feminist, post-colonial and critical race theory.

    This module examines the relationship between art and political struggle in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, exploring how practitioners around the globe have contributed to socio-cultural change and forged new ways of seeing. It addresses how artists, architects, photographers and designers have responded to the increasingly industrialised and fast-paced nature of modern and contemporary experience, and how this has led to a constant re-evaluation of what might be expected of art. Each week is devoted to a specific theme, including modernism, the metropolis, materiality, protest, dissent, and globalisation.
