The inaugural sixth form Classics Lecture Evening took place on Tuesday. In a departure from the usual format for a Classics Lecture, the event featured not an external speaker, but the very best of our upper sixth talent: David Haar discussed the subversive ideas of Latin love poetry, followed by Charles Maddison summarising the findings of his EPQ on the intricacies of the Persian administrative system. Will Haynes recounted his visit to the archaeological site of Amphipolis enthusiastically, before Luka Shanidze introduced us to the Etruscans and the dangers of studying a little-attested culture. The evening was brought to a tremendous close by Ethan Walker, exploring the contradictions of the Roman concept of the ‘golden age’ of Augustus.
