Ancient History

The study of Ancient History enables students to aquire knowledge and understanding, historical kills, and values and attitudes essential to an appreciation of the ancient world; to develop a lifelong interest and enthusiasm for ancient history; and to prepare for informed and active citizenship in the contemporary world. 


Students study Ancient History because it provides them with opportunities to satisfy their fascination and interest in the stories of the past and mysteries of human behaviour. It allows them to develop and apply the research skills and methodologies of the historian and archaeologist. It equips students to question critically and interpret written and archaeological sources for the evidence they provide about the ancient world.
