Are you enthusiastic about the study and enjoyment of the ancient world? Would you like to share engaging discussions of the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome? The Society for Classical Studies (SCS) has created a new Friends of Classics membership category for anyone interested in exploring the world of classics and supporting our efforts to distribute and advance knowledge of the ancient world through outreach activities and the development of research tools.
