Content outline
Classical Literature and Ancient History.

The new Advanced Level specifications have made it possible for the first time to combine the study of Greek and Latin Literature with Ancient History units. The course will, therefore, comprise four areas of study: Greek Epic (Homer's "The Odyssey"); Greek Tragedy (the plays of Sophocles and Euripides); the "Life and Times of Cicero'', and either ''Tiberius and Claudius" or Virgil's ''Aeneid''. These encompass the literature, history, geography and politics of classical times, the social importance of theatre in Greek life, the careers of Julius Caesar and Augustus, the ending of the Republic and the importance of the Roman Empire. Whilst study is based on original texts, accessible English versions are provided.

Method of assessment
