Students attend BMCA Classics conference
17 March 2017
On Saturday, Classics students Emma Khan, Lava Yassen and Mariam Al-Ani, attended the Birmingham and Midlands Classics Association (BMCA) conference.
We had a great morning at the BMCA lectures, and heard some informative and engaging lectures to widen their classical knowledge. The topics ranged from "The Women Greek Tragedy Ignored" to "Death and Grief in the Aeneid".
We even had the opportunity to handle ancient pottery, putting their classroom learning into practical experience.
We are grateful to the classics department and Miss Rankin for organising the morning.
