The Classics and Ancient History discipline at UQ has a research strength in Late Antiquity. Late Antiquity is the study of the history, art, archaeology, literature and culture of the Mediterranean world in the second to seventh centuries after Christ. In the Mediterranean World and across Europe, this era was marked by significant and long-lasting political, economic and religious change, notably the political fragmentation of the Roman Empire, the emergence of the Eastern Roman (or Byzantine) Empire centred on Constantinople, and the rise of Christianity.
