Event description

Description

We are delighted to welcome Dr Peter Jones to give the second talk in the Bristol Classical Association’s 2017-18 speaker series.

Dr Peter Jones MBE, a co-founder of Classics for All, has been a driving force and advocate for the teaching of Classics in schools for more than four decades. He has published widely on ancient language, culture and history, writes an ‘Ancient and Modern’ column for The Spectator, and reviews for The Times, Literary Review, and the BBC History Magazine, for which he is an adviser. He is the author of highly successful books such as Learn Latin, Learn Ancient Greek and the Classics in Translation. He also led the development of JACT’s Reading Greek and Reading Latin courses. Peter’s latest book is Quid Pro Quo (Atlantic, 2016), drawing on topics such as ancient medicine, business, religion, politics, education and the arts to show just how much the English language owes to the ancient world.

Everyone is very welcome to attend the talk although it may be particularly relevant to those teaching or studying GCSE and A Level Classical Civilisation or Ancient History.

Venue: Peace Memorial Hall, Badminton School, Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, BS9 3BA

Limited parking will be available on site on a first-come, first-served basis.
