The well-being of our staff and visitors is our priority at this time and, as a result of government guidance, we've taken the decision to temporarily suspend all bookings for our on-site learning sessions.

In this workshop, your students will take on roles as Greek envoys, visit the court of the Persian king and meet King Darius himself.

By comparing the values of Greece and Persia they will experience how there are different points of view about historical events.
