Forgotten Women of the Ancient World

The heroes of the ancient world were all men, or so we are told in the literature .But this is not the case.  It was Medea who got the Fleece, Ariadne who saved the youth of Athens and there are many more unsung heroines of old.  These women have been almost completely ignored by scholars of old, to the point where they had all but disappeared from view.  But their stories exist and they are screaming out to be heard.

This course looks at the lives of extraordinary women such at Atalanta who sailed to Colchis on the Argo and joined the hunt for the Calledonian Boar.  Artemisia who was ignored by Xerxes when she told him not to fight the Greeks at sea but followed him into battle with five ships under her sole command.  Tomyris, Queen of the Massagetae who waged war against King Cyrus of Persia and won.  The list is endless.

This new and exciting course will give participants a completely new outlook on the Ancient World.
