Program details

The unit introduces students to the diverse range of methods employed within archaeology to explore and present the ancient cultures of Italy. It incorporates varying modules that introduce modern scientific, non-invasive strategies alongside more traditional fieldwork, and looks at how the ancient cultures are presented in a museum context.

Study will commence at Clayton campus and then transfer to Italy, exploring the ancient remains of that city before moving to Prato, where seminars and field trips will investigate the core issues in studying the past.


All students will receive a Monash Abroad Travel Scholarship.
