Home :: Arts :: Classical Studies

Classical Studies covers the world of ancient Greece and Rome, from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity - Classical Studies may cover almost four thousand years, from Aegean prehistory to the medieval period. The field of Classical Studies itself ranges from archaeological excavation to the study of ancient texts on papyrus and stone. Classical studies can range from textual analysis and criticism of ancient literature to the study of ancient and medieval scripts and books. It can cover Roman monuments to Greek pottery, ancient political theory to medieval manuscripts.

Classical studies is the branch of the Humanities comprising the languages, literature, philosophy, history, art, archaeology and other culture of the ancient Mediterranean world (Bronze Age ca. BC 3000 Late Antiquity ca. AD 300600); especially Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome during Classical Antiquity (ca. BC 600 AD 600).

In modern college curriculums the study of the Classics (the period's literature) was the principal study in the humanities.
