Classical Archaeology

The concentration in Classical Archaeology provides extensive experience of the material remains of Greek and Roman culture, including major sites and museums in Greece and/or Italy. Coursework supplies training in archaeological methods as well as a chronological overview of material culture from prehistoric Greece through the later Roman Empire. Hands-on work in Dartmouth’s Hood Museum is a frequent component of these courses, as well as field trips to other museums in North America. Archaeology concentrators are also encouraged to apply for departmental support for participation in archaeological digs during their off terms.
