About me

About me:

I have just completed my Classics PGCE and am about to start my Ancient History and Classical Civilisation Masters. I fell in love with Classical Civilisation when I was introduced to the subject at 13 years old and that passion has led me to continuing my studying. I have taught myself Latin and am currently working towards taking my GCSE in my own time. This gives me a great understanding of the difficulties students can face in learning this language, and techniques to help with understanding and memory.


Personal statement:

I know first hand how daunting and confusing the UCAS process can be! If you're applying for Ancient History or a Classics related subject, or if you simply want some advice for your personal statement I would be happy to help. Not only did I go through it all only a few years ago, but I also got into my first choice University, so would be happy to give you some advice and feedback on any aspect of the process. 


What next?:

If you have any questions, please send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session', both are accessible through this website. Please also remember to tell me the exam board you are using, and specifically what it is that you are struggling with. This information will help to ensure that I'm the right person to help you!

Thankyou, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

About my sessions

The Sessions:

The most important thing to know is that it is you that gets to decide what we do during the sessions. I am a firm believer that to gain the best mark possible, the key is to know the topic inside out. Therefore first we will concentrate on making sure that you are confident with the material you wish to cover. You should be able to explain it to someone who has zero knowledge of the topic by the end of the session! We will go over the information as much as you want, in as much detail, and in as many different ways as you want until you decide that you are confident with it. Then, if you wish, we can begin to look at exam papers. We can either tackle specific example questions, or we can go over techniques that I believe will help you get the best marks possible.

Questions Hebe has answered

Briefly describe the rooms a Roman would have expected to see in a typical set of baths

Roman baths were a very important building structure for Roman citizens. No matter the size of the baths, the number of rooms, when it was built, where it was built, or which Emperor commissioned it, baths always contained the same style of rooms. 

Thermae: this word refers to the bath complexes themselves. It is usually used in relation to Imperial bath complexes. 

The bath complexes had three main rooms: the frigidariumthe tepidarium and the caldaium

The atrium: the first room that a Roman may encounter in the bath complex. It may have been used as an exercise ground. 

The apodyterium: the room where Roman visitors would undress before entering the baths. Slaves would be in charge of looking after the clothes. 

The frigidarium: a room which had a cold plunge pool

The tepidarium: a warm bath where bathers would come to sweat. This room allowed them to transition between the frigidarium adn teh caldarium. Since it was a room to simply sit in, the tepidarium was often one of the most decorated rooms in a Roman bath. 

The caldarium: a hot bath 

The palaestra: an outside exercise ground. Men could exercise here, for example weights and discus's have been found from this area. Men could cover their bodies in oil, which would then be removed, along with the dirt from their skin, with an instrument called a strigil. 

A bath complex may even have a steam room (similar to the modern sauna). 

Bathing complexes may also have a slightly smaller set of baths for women.

In the Odyssey, how did Circe trap some of Odysseus' men?

During Odysseys' journey home he visits many different islands and meets many different people. One island he goes to is Aeaea, where the goddess Circe lived. When the crew reached shore Odysseus sent a group of his men to explore the island. The men stumble across the home of the goddess Circe, where they saw strange creatures such as lions and panthers. Circe lures them into the house and offers them food and drink. However, it was actually a trap. The goddess uses her magic to turn the men into pigs, who Odysseus has to later rescue.
