In the Master’s programme Mediterranean Archaeology, you will explore the material cultures and societies in the Mediterranean region, and their long history of interconnections and cultural exchanges from 2000 BCE onwards.
You will explore Mediterranean connectivity, especially that of Italy and Greece, study the role of ceramics in archaeology, and learn how material remains can help us to reconstruct societies and cultures of the past.
The Mediterranean Archaeology programme comprises both theoretical and thematic approaches and combines them with practical research. You will be able to participate in archaeological fieldwork or engage in materials practice as part of an individual tutorial. The department conducts fieldwork at a variety of locations in Italy, Greece and Turkey, of which ancient Troy is one of the most notable sites. Other fieldwork sites include Halos in Greece and Satricum in Italy.
This Master’s degree programme is offered by two universities. The University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam combined their expertise on the field of ancient history and archaeology in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialists from various academic disciplines creates a stimulating environment for collaboration and study.
