Join the Hellenic Museum and Dr Christopher Gribbin at the seventh annual Summer School. Spend a week exploring the spectacular and fascinating world of the ancient Greeks and Romans in this series of informative, relaxed and entertaining short courses, where anyone is welcome!

This course looks at the architecture and art of the Greek and Roman world by exploring some of the most famous and fascinating sites. The course covers a millennium of history from Athens in the 5th Century BCE to Constantinople in the 6th Century CE. Over that period, the ancient city changes in many ways, responding to historic events, new technology, changing fashions and a new religion. This course is ideal for people wanting to understand the development of architecture and art, for people wanting to know a bit more about life in antiquity, or for the armchair traveller.

The course consists of 5 sessions over 5 days, delivered in-person or online at 3–4PM daily (AEDT). People taking part online can participate live or watch recorded lectures at a time of their convenience. Sessions will cover:

  1. Athens at the height of its power and glory
  2. The Hellenistic cities of Asia Minor – Miletus, Pergamum & Priene
  3. The beauty of Pompeii
  4. The ostentation of Rome in 1st Century CE
  5. Constantinople, a new (but different) Rome
