The Classics department host Dr. Angeliki Roumpou of Nottingham University

We were delighted to host a return visit from Dr. Angeliki Roumpou of Nottingham University.

On Friday 29 March, the school’s Classics department were delighted to host Dr. Angeliki Roumpou of Nottingham University for a lunchtime lecture on Virgil’s Aeneid, which is a set text both at A level and GCSE.

This was the second time we were able to welcome Dr. Roumpou to the school, and the focus of this lecture was on on ‘Dido and Aeneas’ to aid U5’s Easter revision on Books 4 and 6. Dr. Roumpou delivered a fascinating talk, and fielded several challenging questions from her audience, ranging from her personal opinions of Aeneas’ duty, sympathy for the victims of Augustus and the role of Dido.

Thanks to Miss Balchin especially for arranging the talk and introducing her friend and colleague.
