The Hellenic Museum's fourth annual Summer School returns for January 2021!

Hosted by the Hellenic Museum and Dr Christopher Gribbin, Summer School will be offering one short course this summer which will be conducted online over Zoom. 

The course is open to anyone wishing to learn more about the ancient world - no prior knowledge required!

Re-Building-Athens-Assassins-Creed-Odyss

City, town and country in ancient Greece

In this course, we will explore life in ancient Greek settlements across almost 3,000 years. Starting with Mycenae in the Bronze Age, we continue to Athens and its surrounds in the Classical era, then look to Roman Corinth and finish with Byzantine Thessaloniki and Mystras.

The course explores what cities looked like, how they functioned and and how they interacted with the towns and rural areas around them. We consider the continuity across time, as well as the changes resulting from the growth, collapse and transformation of empires. This course is a great way to understand the daily lives of people in ancient Greece and the breadth of Greek history, as well as indulge in some armchair travel.
