As Head of Classics and Ancient History, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our first alumni newsletter. Having recently bid farewell to our Class of 2016, I have been reflecting on just how much the Department has grown and changed since I first joined in 2000. Every year we have taught more and more students, courses and modules, and yet the Department still retains the close-knit sense of community many of you will remember fondly. And so as another academic year is upon us, I would very much like to take this opportunity to say a huge congratulations to our Class of 2016 and to reach out to all alumni with the warmest thanks for contributing to the fabric of our wonderful Department throughout the years. I hope that these newsletters will keep you up to date with news from this community and be a worthy celebration of both our and your endless successes.
