Summer Courses starting in July
Greek Legends

Led by Faizah Islam, Russell Group undergraduate student at Kings College London, this 4 week course for students age 13 - 16 will explore the depths of Greek Mythology.

Everything you wanted to know about Greek Gods and Heroes.

  • Forget about the exploits of the Avengers. Try capturing Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog of the underworld, without using weapons. What other amazing challenges did Hercules have to overcome during his twelve labours? Is it also true that he murdered his entire family?
  • Why was Medusa so hideous? How did Perseus manage to overcome the stare that turned people to stone, and behead her?
  • What gruesome punishment did Zeus bestow upon Prometheus, after he gave man the gift of fire?
  • How did Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx? Would he have made a good contestant in Who wants to be a Millionaire?
  • Which Greek Goddess was chosen by Paris as being the most beautiful woman in the world? Clue: It was not Kim Kardashian.
  • Who was the most fearsome mythological creature?

So, let me take you on a journey of wonder and travel back to a time where everything was possible. To a time where there were real ‘heroes’ and Gods were vain and mischievous.
