Classical Civilisation AS Level at Saffron Walden County High School

Course description

Classical Civilisation is the study of the fascinating history, culture and literature of both the Ancient Greeks and the Romans. Delve into The Iliad and The Aeneid, great epics full of war, heroes, love and loss; study Augustus’ creation of an imperial image in a fundamentally anti-monarchical society; explore religion in ancient Greece, which was central to every aspect of daily life. All of these have had a profound impact on our world today. Students will develop key skills, such as careful analysis and evaluation through examination of ancient texts, art and archaeological evidence.
