Who is Odysseus Anyway?

February 18 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am UTC+0

Dr Pádraic Moran, lecturer in Ancient Classics at the University of Galway, will introduce the character of Odysseus, an unconventional hero of Ancient Greek myth. With Pádraic, participants will hear about some of Odysseus’s great adventures and think about what it means to be a hero.

After this, participants will have the chance to write using the same tools used in the ancient world (wax tablets and styluses, papyrus and reed pens). They’ll have a go at writing their name using the Greek alphabet and explore the names of the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses.

Suitable for ages 8-12 ish and admission is FREE!
