LOVE LATIN is a brand new Mayoral initiative run by The Iris Project which will bring Latin and Classics to state schools across London through a team of volunteers.
In November, Classics Confidential went along to Dormers Wells High School in Southall, London, to film a Love Latin lesson about gladiators. The volunteer speaker was Michael Scott from Cambridge University, who was one of our first ever guests on Classics Confidential! (Follow this link to watch his interview, recorded last summer at Darwin College in Cambridge). Michael was talking to a very enthusiastic group of students, some of whom are already learning Latin with their teacher, Mrs Birchall. The lesson was a great success, as you can see from our mini-documentary. Many thanks to all involved, and especially to Mrs Birchall and the students!
