Evia School  MAY COURSE


This course has been arranged to coincide with the a week of religious festivities in the village of Prokopi, which begins with a festival at the village church and ends with gathering of Roma in the village with all the colour and music which that entails. In the mornings we will study the history of Byzantium through its art, literature and history; in the afternoons we will be active, either walking or swimming or visiting local sites; and in the evening there will be an opportunity to learn the Greek language, both ancient and modern, before dinner.
