City Lit, one of London’s largest adult education colleges, and the British Museum are organising Classics Week.

Classics Week runs from 21-25 June 2021 and takes inspiration from the British Museum’s current exhibition Nero: the man behind the myth (27 May- 24 Oct). Join us for a programme of online talks, discussions, and taster courses exploring the subject of power in ancient Rome.

Main event: Power - lessons from ancient Rome Each night from 21 - 25 June from 18:00-19:00 (UK time), we'll bring you expert talks with our special guest speakers including Mary Beard, Olivette Otele, Tom Holland, and Ian Morris to discuss the subject of Roman power, race, identity and more.

Daytime talks & tasters - The evening speaker series is accompanied by 25 online taster courses hosted by City Lit focusing on various topics of the ancient world, which will be available to pre-book and attend during the week, (additional fees apply to each taster course).
