The study of Classics encompasses the period of history from the mid-2nd millennia BCE to the 6th century CE.
Within the UK school curriculum, the word ‘Classics’ is often used as an umbrella term that can refer to any one of four examined subjects: Latin: The study of the language of the ancient Romans. Classical Greek: Studying the ancient Greek language. Classical Civilisation: Which covers literature, visual/material culture and thought of the classical world. Ancient History: This enables students to gain a greater understanding of the ancient world and how it affects today’s society.
