The Department of Greek and Latin is part of a large UCL
research establishment which, together with the Institute of
Archaeology, the Department of History and the Wellcome Centre for the
History of Medicine, makes up a community of around 30 researchers in
the field of ancient world studies.
We have research strengths in Greek and Latin prose and verse from Homer to the Roman empire and in their reception through to the modern era. As well as being at the leading edge in their individual research, our staff are also engaged in major (inter)national collaborative projects, including the Oxyrhynchus Papyri, the Wellcome medical papyri project, and the Archimedes palimpsest publication.
