Sixth Form students and Year 11 scholars were treated to a fascinating talk last Friday as the new Spencer Lectures Series was launched.
Our first speaker was former Worth teacher and Head of Careers Dr Duncan Pring who gave a lecture on the Maya Civilisation. Prior to teaching, Dr Pring worked as an archaeologist and his book ‘The Protoclassic in Maya Lowlands’ is a detailed and specialist analysis of the archaeological and ceramic evidence for the transitional period between the Preclassic and Classic ages of the Maya civilisation.
The Spencer Lectures Series is intended to provide our Sixth Form students and Year 11 scholars with thought-provoking, scholarly, creative, philosophical, political, technological or social enriching information. Jeremy Quin MP will be the second speaker in the series in the second half of the Lent Term.
We would love to hear from anyone who would be willing to contribute on anything from installation art to robotics, working for the Vatican to running an international business, singing for a living or investigating fraud. If you can help, please contact Dr Bruna Gushurst-Moore, Assistant Head (Sixth Form) at firstname.lastname@example.org
