Rumbling around Greece!

Rumbling around Greece!

Students in the King's College London Department of Classics have just returned from a magical week in Greece – fully funded by the department's Jamie Rumble Memorial Fund. This year saw the largest trip in the Rumble Fund's history, with thirty BA and MA students setting off to Athens, Piraeus and Delphi as part of their module on the 'Classical Art of the Body: Greek Sculpture and its Legacy'.
