Ancient History

Ancient History: Roman and Greek

The Dreaming Spires Classical Civilization course is the tutor's labor of love: Alison lives, breathes, eats -- and even sings! -- Classics.

She can't wait to share this love with her new online students, focusing on the rise of Rome during the reign of Augustus.

You'll be tracing the origins of the Roman Republic from the founding fathers and mothers, then dabble in the era of Caesar (and his little dabble with Cleopatra!), exploring its literature, architecture, and philosophy, and delving into issues of warfare and and worship.

It will be high-quality, honors-level stuff, though the writing component is minimal. As in all Dreaming Spires courses, there is an option to take one's study further with an add-on extension which requires more writing.

Just to give you a taster of what's on offer at this feast of ancient lore and legend:

Fees are $330 + $25 non-refundable registration fee. $115 for the writing extension.

For further information, please contact dreamingspireshomelearning<at>

Classical Civilization times:

  •  Wednesdays 10-11 am EST (writing extension stays another 30 minutes after)

First meeting for the 2016-2017 school year is 14th Sept, 2016.
