Welcome to Ancient Classics at the University of Galway

Ancient Classics is the study of the origins of European culture, focusing particularly on the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome.

The study of Ancient Classics—including authors such as Homer, Herodotus, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Ovid—has been a central part of humanities education and a shaping influence on Western culture since the Middle Ages, through the Renaissance and down to modern times.
