Facets of Classics (History): Is this Sparta?
Facets of Classics is a series of workshops for A-Level students of philosophy, history, languages and literature, who do not have the opportunity to study classics at school. The workshops are designed to help students apply the skills they have learnt in other disciplines to studying classical material, in order to empower them to take on a new subject at university. The workshops are designed to draw key connections between a subjects they already study and classics. In the history workshop, "Is this Sparta?", students identify and challenge modern portrayals of the Spartans through source evaluation; comparing films, video games and marketing with archaeological sites, artefacts and ancient texts. In this video the workshop leader, Maria Haley, explains more about the content.
