All courses will be presented by Dr Christopher Gribbin, a public historian and Adjunct Lecturer at La Trobe University. The courses are delivered in an entertaining and informative way and can be a valuable experience for teachers or anyone looking to engage with ancient literature and society.

The Summer School will run from 9-13 January 2022 (US time).
