Classical Civilisation 

Teachers and learners of the Classical Civilisation A Level, Greek Art and Architecture module will recognise many of the objects from the specification on this list. Professor Caroline Vout’s video on the Peplos Kore will offer students a rare opportunity to think about polychromy in the ancient world. While the Parthenon clip is rather short, it is a fun introduction to the monumental temple, and a good taster of Greek Architecture.
