Latin & Greek for young and old.

 

 

PROGRAMME


Students will be expected to attend the whole course, but may negotiate late arrival or early departure if circumstances dictate (please see Daily Timetable below).

During each day there will be three teaching sessions with time for private study and relaxation in between.  Each session will last for one hour and will demand considerable preparation by students.  In the evenings there will be lectures and other events, and there will be two free afternoons when there will be opportunities to visit local museums and sites. A field trip to Hadrian’s Wall will be organised on Tuesday. There will also be a series of optional afternoon classes on various topics such as grammar, metre or Medieval Latin.

ARRIVAL
Arrival and reception will be between 2.00 and 6.00 p.m. on Saturday 21st. Please inform the director if you have to arrive earlier or later. A limited number of rooms are available on Friday evening if anyone wishes to arrive early. See the accommodation section for B&B at the college.

THE END OF THE COURSE
The Summer School ends with lunch on Saturday 28th July. Students should be free to leave shortly after 12.00 noon, but if travel arrangements dictate otherwise an earlier departure may be negotiated. A packed lunch can be provided on request.
