Event description
Using Ancient Athenian Inscriptions in the classroom at KS 1, 2, 3 and GCSE and A-level Classical Civilisation and Ancient History

About this Event

Are you a Classics teacher looking to develop your knowledge of resources relevant to the specifications for GCSE and A-level Classical Civilisation or Ancient History, or to KS 1 and 2 national curriculum and KS 3?

The Classical Association Teaching Board, with Classics for All and the British School at Athens, is delighted to present this unique, interactive CPD event on Ancient Athenian Inscriptions in UK Collections, led by Dr Peter Liddel (University of Manchester) with guests including Charlie Andrew (Classics for All), Dr Sharon Marshall (University of Exeter), Dr April Pudsey (Manchester Metropolitan University), Rob Hancock-Jones (Townley Grammar School), Liam Holian (Weaverham High School), Sophie Evans (Pimlico Academy)

Ticket sales close on Thursday 3rd June at 6pm.

Among the most enduring habits of the ancient world was the inscription of public and private documents and accounts on stone and other hard surfaces. From ancient Athens alone there survive some 20,000 inscriptions written on stone; they are deeply informative about all aspects of ancient public and private life, culture, society, politics and diplomacy.

Of the extant ancient Athenian inscriptions, a small but significant number (ca. 225) are to be found in a dozen public and private collections across the UK. The AHRC-sponsored Attic Inscriptions in UK Collections project, hosted on the Attic Inscriptions Online website, is developing editions, translations and notes on all of these inscriptions. Its YouTube channel is developing a series of videos aimed at a wide audience interested in the inscriptions of ancient Athens.

Later this year the project launches the Attic Inscriptions: Education (AIE) part of its website. This brings together resources based on research designed to support teachers of classical subjects at all pre-18 levels, designed to be of relevance to the KS 1 and KS 2 national curriculum, to be of interest to those teaching KS 3 and to address aspects of the specifications for GCSE and A-level Classical Civilisation and Ancient History.

We hope also that we will be able to identify specific areas of ancient Greek history and culture that could be better addressed (through ancient Athenian inscriptions) in future versions of these specifications.

Although aimed at schoolteachers of any KS, participants may not find all sessions immediately relevant. No prior experience of studying inscriptions or knowledge of Greek is required (though we welcome those who are interested in exploring the possibility of using Athenian inscriptions to teach Greek language).

Each session consists of a conversation, with guest discussants, on the potential that ancient Athenian inscriptions have for current and future syllabi and specifications:
