Playing with Ancient Greek
Understanding ancient Greek is essential to studying the Classical past, but it can also be great fun for everyone. Join Serafina Nicolosi in an interactive seminar where you can hear about the origin of common English words from ancient Greek and learn the basics of this language such as how to write your name using the Greek alphabet.
This activity is suitable for ages 10+
