History Association: an Introduction to Ancient Greek Religion Podcasts + accompanying scheme of work - provides an introduction to some of the key rituals of Ancient Greek religion. The podcasts are for advanced KS2, and KS3 students; Year 13 students (ancient languages) have also successfully used them for background, and they may be helpful in preparation for OCR A Level Classical Civilisation (H408/31) Greek Religion. The scheme of work is aimed at advanced KS2, and KS3 students.

The podcasts are narrated by Simon Brown and written by: Hugh Bowden (King’s College, London), Felix Budelmann (University of Oxford), Esther Eidinow (University of Bristol), Olympia Panagiotidou (University of Thessaloniki), Robert Parker (University of Oxford), and Yulia Ustinova (Ben Gurion University, Israel).

Romans in focus is a series of free five-minute videos that take a closer look at what life was really like under the Roman empire, from displays of power under Augustus, to identity and life as a soldier stationed in northern Britain. Each of the eight topics aims to explore and examine those who were often invisible in Latin literature, and to challenge and debate some of our most common misconceptions about these people and their lives.

Laura Jenkinson-Brown (creator of Greek Myth Comix) has put together these great resources for Classical Civilisation GCSE, including special sections of World of the Hero and Greek Religion. Check out her website for more information and links to other great teaching stuff.
