Course 1: Roman Britain (Tutor: Leslie Pitcher)

7 weeks - the start date is 17th October with a break on 21st November


Course 2: Archaeology of the Mediterranean Islands (Tutor: Dr Judie English)

10 weeks - the start date is January 9th 2025  and half term break is February 13th

Course detail: For several millennia the islands of the Mediterranean were variably prosperous through trade or fought over control of the trade. The result is a series of small areas of land which bear the remains of major civilisations based in the Middle east, North Africa and southern Europe. However, the straits of Gibraltar were often seen as the edge of the civilised world and islands at the western end of the Mediterranean and just outside the Straits have a very different trajectory of development. This course will  look at the monuments and their supporting cultures on a representative sample of these islands from earliest prehistory to, at least, the medieval period.
