Dates of course: Sunday 3rd July - Wednesday 6th July 2022

Classics: Ancient Greece is the study of the language, culture, history and thought of ancient Greek civilisation. This course will provide you with a real feel for what a Classics degree is like, and is designed so that you won't need any prior experience of Classics or Classical languages to participate.

Classics is a very broad subject and during the week you will attend lectures and seminars on a wide variety of topics, including ancient history, archaeology and literature.

Besides the lectures and language classes, you will also be set something to prepare for. This will involve being given an ancient text or texts to read through in advance (and discuss with staff and other students), on which you will be asked to produce a short essay. You will then have the opportunity to talk through your ideas.
