History of Art and Archaeology Undergraduate Study

From performance masquerade in West Africa to the visual cultures of China and Japan; the archaeology of Morocco and Ethiopia to the temples of South East Asia; and from the sophisticated book cultures of South Asia and the Middle East to questions of identity in museums, our programmes cover a plurality of themes and theoretical approaches, providing extensive coverage of the arts, archaeology, architecture and material culture of Asia, Africa and the Middle East from ancient times to the present day.
