Warwick's Classics Department believes that research into Greek and Roman antiquity contributes important social and cultural insights for modern society.
Each year Warwick staff and students collaborate on producing a play from antiquity, accompanied by talks and workshops for schools.
The Warwick Classics Network supports the teaching of the Classical World in Schools across the region.
