Learn the dramatic story of the Minoan and Mycenaean Ages, Europe’s first complex civilisations. Uncover the truth behind the story of Leonidas and the 300 Spartan warriors who held back the might of Persia and discover more about the golden age of Classical Greece as theatre, philosophy, and democracy developed in the bustling metropolis of Athens. Finally we'll look at how Greek culture spread throughout the eastern Mediterranean and beyond as vast empires were won and fought over.

This short course will take you on a journey of over 3000 years and introduce you to some of the most important characters from Ancient Greece, some mythological, some real, all legendary!

Sessions will take place on four consecutive Friday afternoons on 7, 14, 21, 28 June from 1-3pm. Tickets cost £80.
