Art History

Monumental architecture and elaborately crafted works of visual art are amongst the most compelling and important evidence available to students of past societies. Their interpretation draws upon a wide range of perspectives within archaeology and related disciplines, from style analysis and iconography in art history, through archaeologies of contextual meaning, sociologies and anthropologies of art, to scientific technical studies of, for example, pigments and glazes. With an exceptional range of period and regional expertise, and the proximity of the collections of the British Museum, the Institute of Archaeology offers students unparalleled opportunities for the study of the art of ancient civilisations.
