Welcome to our new Classics Outreach blog! Linked with our shiny new @ClassicsNCL Instagram account, we will be sharing a range of posts on the ancient world: on studying in Newcastle, the Roman presence in the North East, ancient literature, languages, mythology, art, archaeology and so on! 🏺
These entries will be posted by our Classics Outreach team of students, so here’s some facts so you can get to know us a little bit better.
