TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ANCIENT GREEKS
Fantastic course. Information packed, but not overwhelming. The links to online readings provide nice context for a lot of the lectures, but weren't in any way daunting. Highly recommend!
It was really interesting especially with the lectures having lots of visual aids. The reading activities also helped me understand more and learn in general. It was a great course.
Brilliant course. Superbly assembled and presented material. And I love the prof's wry sense of humour! I've been wanting to learn about this subject for many years. Highly recommended.
Well presented, wonderful insight into the world of the ancient Greeks. I learnt a lot, and it has whetted my appetite for more. I really loved this course, and enjoyed it very much indeed
