School of History, Classics & Archaeology

Last chance to sample Innovative Learning Week 2013

Innovative Learning Week finishes in fine style, 22-23 February, with trips to Stirling Castle and Hadrian’s Wall, film screenings, a meeting of Classics magazine contributors and, not least, an Archaeology Society pub quiz.

Highlights of the week have included:

  • ancient technology workshops in making chipped stone tools, fire and cordage
  • an assessment of Lucian, a comic writer of the 2nd century AD, as the first writer of science fiction
  • events to enhance study skills and careers talks, including a Q&A with Apprentice star Margaret Mountford
  • visits to archives, museums and galleries
  • lectures on subjects as diverse as Gender, History and Archaeology, Why Historiography Matters and Rock Music, Politics and Society in the long 1960s.

But it is not over yet!
