Ancient Lit Class Completed and Enjoyed!

Yesterday, Abbi completed her Ancient Literature class. She really enjoyed it. She really liked having a group of people to discuss readings.

For her final, she was assigned a partner and they asked to compare and contrast 3 books that they read. They had 8 different questions to write answers for: Acheological Prototype (comparing the book's accuracy with real information), Dates, the Role of Merlin, Geneology, Guinevere, Lancelot, Religion, and Arthur's Title. For the last portion of their class they focused on Arthurian Literature.

As a presentation, she and her partner made a poster with the information. She also included some Ogham writings which she's been having a lot of fun playing around with.

Here are some close ups of the Ogham writings:

The first one is read as
"Arthur maqi Uther" or in modern English "Arthur son of Uther"

The second one is "Pendragon", Arthur's last name.

As we were leaving and Abbi was saying her good-byes, her teacher told her she had been a joy to have in class and that she hoped Abbi would consider her American Literature class that she's offering next year. We'll see.... :)
