A significant proportion of our research is now focused on the area of later Greek and Roman culture, and we have created a Centre for the Study of Hellenistic and Romano-Greek Culture as a focus for this activity.
The Centre was set up in 2001 following the award of a £1.25 million funding grant from the Leverhulme Trust. In 2003-7 the Centre hosted an AHRC-funded project on pagan monotheism headed by Stephen Mitchell. Projects specially linked with the Centre include those on Athenaeus, Galen and Black Sea History. These individual projects also fall into the time period covered by the Centre.
