The language and literature of Greece and Rome had a profound impact on Western culture. Some of our earliest examples of drama, history, philosophy and epic poetry are written in Greek and Latin. For more than 2000 years Latin was the language of science, medicine, diplomacy and law.

These two classical languages remain important for the study, not only of the Greco-Roman world, but also of the languages, ideas and literatures of societies that grew out of the classical world.
