Sammanfattning: The aim for this study was to see the epoch antiquity’s part in the course History 1a1 in the textbooks, the regulatory documents, and the active history teachers in the municipality of Umeå. The method that has been used is hermeneutic method in cooperation with use of history. The study relay on the theory of history culture made by Klas-Göran Karlsson, but also on the theory of history consciousness. The study’s conclusion is that the epoch antiquity should take a small part of the course History 1a1, but that there is space for the teachers who want to give it more time. The books show the same results when some of them have a small part aimed for the antiquity and some of them have a few more pages. The teacher’s opinions show the same pattern when the majority thinks that the course should have a small part of the course, while others think it should have a bigger part. The result of what content the antiquity should have got a similar response in the three parts of the study. Governance and culture are the two themes that is said to be the most important part of the epoch’s content, the teachers agree but also think that historical consciousness is a matter of importance. The historical consciousness is also a big part of the regulatory documents and can be seen in the textbooks as well. The regulatory documents find the knowledge of source criticism and use of history to be of importance, but none of them appears in the textbook’s chapter of antiquity nor in the opinions of the teachers.
