The Department of Archaeology and Ancient History conducts research and education in four subjects: archeology, historical archeology, historical osteology and Classical Studies. The subjects have different
backgrounds with respect to history of ideas and are working partly with different source materials, methods and theoretical perspectives. This is a strength for both teaching and research. Our students often combine studies in our different subjects in their exams.
