The AHRC-funded research project conducted by Senior Research Fellow in Classics Education, Dr Arlene Holmes-Henderson, has produced three digital Classical Civilisation sourcebooks to be used by school students.
The sourcebooks, which are a collaboration with King's doctoral student, Hardeep Dhindsa, King's postdoctoral researcher, Dr Peter Swallow, and the Liverpool World Museum, will include learning activities, videos, simulations, 3D scans and close-ups of objects, and will cover GCSE modules 'Myth and Religion', as well as A-Level 'Greek Art' and 'Love and Relationships'.
The project is part of a larger aim to improve access to Classical Studies in museums and schools, particularly in regions of the UK facing 'Classics poverty'.
‘By collaborating with museum curators, exam board professionals, educators and academics, we have produced interactive digital resources which make the ancient world accessible to everyone. Working with the World Museum in Liverpool in this phase of the project has been a particular highlight.’– Dr Arlene Holmes-Henderson
