'See if you can tell your Tantalus from your Tacitus!' - The Daily Telegraph

'This book aims to fill you in on the stuff you wish you'd been taught at school' - The Times

______________________

A Classical Education is a must-have for anyone feeling let down by modern schooling.

How many times have you wished that your history stretched all the way back to Greek and Roman myths and legends? Or that you'd been taught Latin at school? Or perhaps you wish you knew all about the great inventions and medical developments that have made our world what it is today? A Classical Education provides all of these classical facts that modern schooling leaves out, and many more.

Perfect for parents who wish to broaden their children's education, as well as for those who would simply like to learn or relearn the facts themselves, A Classical Education is informative and educational, but above all accessible. Subjects include: Latin and Greek; Logic and philosophy; Natural sciences; Art and architecture; Poetry and drama; History and Classical literature.
