The Homeric World This unit uses literature and archaeology to examine the world described by Homer in his poetic works. From important historic Mycenaean sites to the tale of bold Odysseus, this unit aims to bring this ancient period to life. The examination will only require one literature and culture unit. We will study two as this gives each student a choice in the exam and, well, you can’t do too much learning can you?
