Current projects

The department has a wide selection of projects that geographically cover Northern Scandinavia to Turkey and Georgia, Greece and Italy across Northern Africa to Eastern and Southern Africa, Latin America and South-east Asia.

Here we present some of them.


Uppsala University's archaeological investigations in the Zeus temple at Labraunda, Turkey

Martyrs and Archangels

The project aims at editing Coptic literary texts in collections all over the world.

The Viking Phenomenon

The Viking Age (c.750-1050 CE) has long been a touchstone of identity in the Nordic countries, not least in Sweden where the primary project focus lies. While the Vikings enjoy a popular recognition common to few other ancient cultures, their history has been reinvented, used and abused to suit the needs of successive generations, in a process that continues today.
