Ancient History


Ancient history

Ancient History has a clear focus on the ancient past.

Students are able to explore scientific and ethical issues regarding human society that are a part of our modern cultural heritage. In Year 11 we focus on the role of History, Archaeology and Science in investigating the past. We also complete specific case studies and students are able to conduct their own historical investigation.
In Year 12 students complete the core study on the "Cities of Vesuvius - Pompeii and Herculaneum". They also study a specific personality, Ancient Society and Historical Period. The course is designed to encourage students to think more broadly about the world in which they live by developing an understanding of the world as it was in the Ancient past.
