The Classics Department consists of a single member of Staff, David Swift, who lives the life of a recluse in the monastery pictured right, at Meteora in Northern Greece. He comes down only occasionally to take pictures of classical sites (all the pictures on this web site are his) but during Term time he does teach Classical Civilisation, Latin and Greek. If you wish to speak to him, he is always pleased to talk Classics or Latin. He enjoys the past as much as the present, and looks to the future with some concern for any student who has no Classical training.
