Who Are We?

The Malta Classics Association, is a collaborative initiative of both the staff and the students of the University of Malta’s Department of Classics and Archaeology. Malta’s Classical history stretches back to the dawn of antiquity and the islands have a correspondingly long and noble tradition of Classical studies. The Association aims to promote knowledge of Classics in all its branches to the widest audience possible, both academic and general. This includes study of the Latin, Greek and Sanskrit languages and of the Roman, Greek and Indo-European cultures. The inclusion of Sanskrit acknowledges the close linguistic and cultural links between Latin, Greek and Sanskrit and the people who spoke them. The Malta Classics Association is especially keen to promote these languages to Maltese schools, to the general public and to build links with universities and other Associations around the world.
