History of Civilisations

Group Contact: Diane Downie

Roberts  - Ancient History This discussion group was established in September 2016 and is in its fourth year of a study of Early Civilisations using as a basis the book ‘Ancient History’ by JM Roberts. (Available second hand for less than £5). The group has set a maximum number of 15. If you would like to join, please contact Diane Downie ( see contact details below)

Members of the group read the relevant part of Ancient History, investigate subjects relevant to the civilisation we are studying, and present their findings to the group, and then there is a group discussion. We break for coffee and biscuits at half time.
