Ancient Greek Storyteller visits Swallow Class

Steve Manning

Swallow class were transported back in time to Ancient Greece and learnt more about the legacy of this influential civilisation including the understanding that 2500 years ago the country was not known as Greece. When Lysandros (a Sparta living in legendary Athens) told his heroic story, they discovered the differences for Greeks living in Sparta and Athens- two cities they had previously researched. Life was particularly different for soldiers, boys and girls as well as women. Swallow class were particularly keen to learn about Lysandros’ uniform, training, lifestyle and family.
