Diversity in the Greek and Roman Worlds

Queer Antiquities Trail

Queer Antiquities 

Trail At the Museum of Classical Archaeology 

This trail was originally made available as part of Cambridgeshire LGBTQ History Month in February 2018. It has been permanently available ever since.

Medea by Euripides is a prescribed text for the OCR Classical Civilisation A Level. This discussion with the producers of an all BAME Medea is a great resource for use in the classroom. Khameleon Productions’ adaptation of the play focuses on Medea’s “otherness” and exclusion.

It is also useful for those studying the OCR Women in the Ancient World GCSE module.
