Ancient World Research Cluster (AWRC)
Among the Oxford colleges, Wolfson has no match in expertise of the Ancient World.
Thirteen Governing Body Fellows, several dozen emeritus, supernumerary, and research fellows, and more than 35 students work on a diverse range of topics covering most of the ancient world from Gibraltar to Japan and from the beginnings of civilization to the middle ages.
Projects affiliated with the Ancient World Cluster:
The activities of the Wolfson Ancient World Cluster, generously supported by a gift from Baron Lorne Thyssen, are:
• two lunch meetings each term for all members of the cluster, both fellows and students
• seminars by members of the cluster and their collaborators
• grants for members of the cluster supporting workshops, field work, short-term projects, etc. Click here for further details.
• see the Ancient World Cluster Calendar for upcoming events.
Several scholarships in different aspects of Ancient World Studies are housed at Wolfson College.
We are grateful for the financial support of Lorne Thyssen-Bornemisza, Chris Levett, the Leon Levy Foundation and Thames and Hudson, and the strategic help from Philip Kay.
