Discover Ancient Greece and Egypt.
Terms 1 & 2, 2015, Brisbane.
TV, film, internet, books and tourism all allow us glimpses of history, but a coherent picture of the past is most likely in a guided community of face-to-face learners. Come and join such a community for eight weekly sessions of investigation and discovery.
These sessions are designed for those who are interested in ancient history but have had no formal post-school study. They combine visual and written sources, teacher instruction and student inquiry. Each of the courses includes an optional visit to the University of Queensland to investigate ancient artifacts.
They are led by a qualified teacher who is a graduate of ancient history and has taught the subject in Queensland schools and to adults. The courses should give you a foundation to pursue your own investigations or to undertake formal study.
