  • Games & Festivals in Ancient Greece

    Wednesday 26th April 2023 10:30-13:30

    Maximum 6 students.

    Come and spend a morning immersed in the religion and athletics of the Ancient Greek world. We will explore the Athenian Acropolis and learn the stories about the heroes and gods whose temples occupied this religious space. We will focus in particular on the goddess Athena and the Panathenaic festival that was held in her honour on an annual basis.

    You will also get the chance to study ancient literature as well as handle replica artefacts to help us recreate this important festival before we move on to study the sites of Delphi and Olympia. All three sites held important athletic competitions as well as functioning as religious sanctuaries and we will therefore consider the overlap between athletics and religion in the ancient world.
