Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Balliol College
Balliol was one of the founding colleges for this relatively new degree and is fully committed to it. We are looking for lively, enquiring students who are keen and committed to the study of the ancient world, including its material culture and archaeology. We welcome applicants who have already had some archaeological experience as well as those who have not. The College helps fund travel to the Mediterranean for both general exploration and the formal requirements of the course. Several of our students have been on the excellent summer school at the British School at Athens. Balliol CAAH students go on to a wide range of careers – from further degrees in archaeology or ancient history, to law.
Number of places at Balliol: usually 2.
