Wednesday 2 March | 1.00 – 3.10

Classics for All in partnership with Newcastle University are hosting a series of FREE ONLINE talks to support A Level classical subjects. 

Join us for an afternoon devoted to all things Augustus! These short talks are designed to support the curriculum for Imperial Image, blending knowledge of key themes with skills in using secondary scholarship and material evidence. Resources will be made available after the session has taken place.
