Full event details

The event is based on the research of Reading academics who produced the first ever English translations of a set of schoolbooks from the Roman empire.

Students aged 10-18 will have the opportunity to try out actual ancient school exercises (translated into English where appropriate) using replicas of ancient school equipment, in a setting that uses the ancient rather than modern educational conventions. (These include a mixed-age classroom in which each student is engaged in a different task, working at their own pace).
