The Faculty of Classics is one of the world's leading centres for the study of the ancient world. The Faculty hosts research groups in the Greek lexicon, Mycenaean epigraphy, Roman colonial landscapes and Greek in Italy.

Our researchers are also an integral part of the Canterbury Hinterland Project, identifying and investigating sites dating from the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, and Saxon times in the vicinity of the city.
