The School is made up of three broad subject areas; Archaeology, Classics and History. Three multi-disciplinary research centres are also affiliated to the School.
Archaeology continues a long-established reputation built by famous scholars such as V. Gordon Childe and Stuart Piggott.
Recent appointments and new programmes have revitalised this traditional but perennially important discipline.
History at Edinburgh is internationally renowned for the breadth and depth of staff teaching and research interests.
The Centre for the Study of Modern and Contemporary History is the University of Edinburgh's leading centre for research into the history of the modern world.
The Centre was established to promote the study of Scottish migration and the impact this had overseas and at home.
The CMRS promotes research and postgraduate teaching in medieval and renaissance topics across the University.
