A multi-disciplinary subject that covers art, history, literature and philosophy of the ancient Greek and Roman world. Students study two topics:
Greek Social and Political Life – Look at how the Greeks lived and came up with many concepts that we still live with today like democracy.
Greek Mythology – Discover the fascinating world of myth. How did the Greeks believe the world began? Who were the Greek Gods? Can we see links to Maori mythology?
These ancient civilisations provide the foundations for concepts that can still be found today and are relevant to New Zealand society.
