Classical Archaeology & Ancient History (CAAH)

Lincoln is justly considered the flagship college for CAAH at Oxford. Not only do we consistently have the largest intake among Oxford colleges for this degree, our students excel academically and have managed to create a small but vibrant community.

Dr Maria Stamatopoulou, Tutorial Fellow in Classical Archaeology and Art, Senior Dean

CAAH is a relatively recent addition to the College, although we have been home to the Lincoln Chair in Classical Archaeology (currently held by Professor R R R (Bert) Smith FBA) since 1885. This subject recruits 4-5 undergraduates per year, who are taught by Dr Maria Stamatopoulou (Greek archaeology) and Dr Josh Thomas (Roman archaeology), and is very popular with graduate students. Recent fundraising successes mean that Dr Stamatopoulou’s post is endowed, and we have secured philanthropic funding for four years for the Lavery-Shuffrey career development Fellowship currently held by Dr Thomas.

Challenges: We hope to secure permanent funding to support the second, career development post. It costs roughly £1.5m to endow the post in perpetuity.
