The first Summer School in Ancient Languages will take place at Swansea University 19 July to 1 August 2015. There will be intensive courses on Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced Latin and Greek, as well as Beginners Hieroglyphs, Medieval Latin and Greek Epigraphy. Intermediate Latin is also available through the medium of Welsh. These courses correspond to one semester of the language at university. Courses are open to all ages 12+. 12-18 year olds are welcome when accompanied by an adult who takes full responsibility for the child.
The courses will be taught on the campus of Swansea University which won the WhichUni gold award for Best University in 2014. The University has the Egypt Centre on site, Swansea beach is but a minute’s walk away, a short bus trip will get participants to the city centre with museums (Swansea Museum, Waterfront Museum, Dylan Thomas Centre etc.) and the Marina, and the beautiful Gower peninsula can be reached by bus from the city centre for those interested in exploring its history and nature. With the many historical sites (not just Roman), the National Botanic Gardens, National Trust and Cadw properties all at less than 40 minutes away, the University is ideally located for a language-intensive course with plenty of scope for exploring South Wales.
