fold faq Professorship of Classical Archaeology

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Nadin Burkhardt

Classical archaeology is the study of objects left behind by the antique cultures of the Mediterranean region – from drinking vessels to temples – with a focus on the Ancient Greeks and Romans. As a discipline of visual and media studies, it is a partner of art history, particularly in relation to the reception of Antiquity and iconographic methods. It also has close links to classical philology, as philological topics are complemented and broadened through the study of ancient artifacts. Finally, classical archaeology has connections to topics and questions in historical disciplines such as ancient history and ancient church history, as well as certain areas of geography.

Research priorities

  • Urban development in Late Antiquity with a focus on Greece and the southern Balkans
  • Re-use and re-purposing of artworks and buildings in Late Antiquity
  • The beginnings of the great Greek colonization in the west: Pithekoussai (project funded by Thyssen)
  • Acculturation phenomena between the Greeks and the indigenous peoples of Magna Graecia
