Capital Classics

University of Liverpool - The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology

The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology at Liverpool is a unique setting for the study of the ancient world, in which Greek and Roman history, literature and culture are studied alongside (to name only a few) Ancient Egypt, the Ancient Near East, and Iron Age Europe.  We also run a number of innovative outreach programmes. Our Liverpool School Classics Project takes the teaching of Latin and Greek into a number of schools in Merseyside and the Wirral, and also provides short courses in teaching Latin to encourage e.g. MFL teachers with a Classical background.  (For further information, contact the scheme’s coordinator, Dr. Jan Haywood: Our Liverpool Ancient Worlds summer school attracts both school pupils and the general public, to study a range of ancient languages and cultures.  (Contact the Director, Dr. Glenn Godenho: .)  Finally, the Postgate and Walbank courses for teachers of Ancient History, are designed to support the expansion of Ancient History as a school subject; we expect to run an annual course in London to support teachers as part of Capital Classics.  ( Contact Professor Tom Harrison for further details:
