About Us

The Medieval and Ancient Research Centre at the University of Sheffield (MARCUS) brings together a concentration of research and teaching expertise that is unique within the UK.

Ranging from archaic Greece to Renaissance Europe, MARCUS represents an array of disciplines, from history to biblical studies, from philosophy to languages, and from archaeology to music.

What holds us together is the belief that the social structures, cultural expressions and individual experiences of this period are at the foundation of the world we live in today. MARCUS co-ordinates a regular seminar series, MARS, and organises other events for specialists and for the interested public, including schools and local libraries.
