Description

The Cambridge School Classics Project is widely recognised as one of the most successful of the British curriculum development projects of the 1960s and 1970s. Until now its full story has never been written. Its impact on the way Latin is taught in schools has been remarkable and its development of courses in Greek and Roman civilisation have also made an important contribution to the humanities curriculum of schools. The main focus of this historical study is on the origins and operations of the Project during its full-time existence 1966 to 1970, although attention is also paid to later developments.
