Level 1 Classical Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss C. Watson

"... Classics I loved because of the stories." 

Steven Adams - My Life, My Fight

Classics encourages us to make links between the present and the ancient past. In this course we study the Greek gods and their myths, Alexander the Great and his impact, the Greek hero Heracles and his Twelve Labours, and the impossible choice of choosing between the law of the king, or the law of the gods, as told in the tragic play Antigone. 

If you're interested in the myths, the art, and the general world of Ancient Greece, Classics is for you!
