Here at the WCN we are creating a series of interactive videos in which our academics answer questions from teachers and pupils based on the classics curriculum, and talk about their own research. Follow the link to watch our videos and to send in your questions and feedback.

In his inaugural Professorial lecture '"This is Sparta": The Ancient World Then and Now', Prof. Michael Scott sets out his vision for the study, teaching and communication of the ancient world in the 21st century. Recorded 20th February 2019.
Every Thursday at 4pm, Prof Michael Scott takes part in a live Facebook Q&A session, answering questions on all things Classics and Ancient History. Follow the link for an archive of past and present videos. The friendly and welcoming style of these videos make them an excellent teaching resource, while the videos also include information on upcoming events.
Ancient Invisible Cities
In autumn 2018, our very own Prof Michael Scott presented a landmark series on BBC2, Ancient Invisible Cities, taking the laser scanning techniques used in Italy's Invisible Cities to Cairo, Athens, and Istanbul. This series, with its engaging mixture of adventure, exploration, history, and technology, is an excellent potential teaching resource. More information on the behind the scenes aspects and filming of Ancient Invisible Cities can be found on Michael's website - www.michaelscottweb.com.
The British School at Athens (BSA) have created a video archive of lectures which will be of interest to those studying classics and ancient history. The following lectures were recorded by the British School at Athens in both Athens and London, as part of our academic lecture programmes. These presentations document new research and new ideas. Some of these ideas are currently unpublished.
Although the lectures were not given with the school syllabus in mind, they have been organised here by module, to provide ‘extension’ activities and additional material for interested students.
The information in these lectures can be used when students are required to make reference to recent scholarship.
