Ancient history

In Year 12, students investigate the range and nature of archaeological and written sources available for the study of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum through an exploration of issues relating to reconstruction, ownership and custodianship of the past. This is followed by the investigation of key features of one ancient society, one personality on the context of their time and an investigation of one historical period. The focus is always on a critical analysis of sources.
