Greek and Roman Cities Study Day for local GCSE students

Greek and Roman Cities Study Day for local GCSE students

Event details: Monday 23 June 2014, 1:00pm-4:30pm. Location: Jessop West.

Jane Rempel (Department of Archaeology) and Julia Hillner (Department of History) have organised a study day on the topic of Greek and Roman cities for local GCSE students, with support from the Faculty Learning & Teaching Strategic Communities fund and Archaeology’s Widening Participation fund. The day will provide the students with an opportunity to learn more about the ancient Greek and Roman world through a series of seminars designed and led by our own level 3 and MA students.

Approximately 40 GCSE students will attend the study day, which will include a quick image quiz and introduction followed by a choice of two different small group seminars on our students’ specialist topics. The school students will then have an opportunity to find out more about what it is like to study at university in small group discussions with our seminar leaders. The day will close with a summary talk, including an introduction to the current excavation of a Roman imperial villa at Vagnari, southern Italy by Maureen Carroll.
