Cambridge University Essay Competition Success

Congratulations to Y12 student Eden-Maia Shackleton who took first prize in the Fitzwilliam College Ancient World/ Classics Essay competition! Eden produced a 2500 word essay on the question ‘Is it anachronistic to suggest that racism existed in the ancient world?’ in which she successfully synthesised her excellent knowledge of Greek and Roman sources. Dr Sara Owen, Admissions Tutor and Fellow in Classics presented Eden with her certificate and prize of £200 at a special ceremony at the college, commenting that her essay stood out as the clear winner. Eden is taught Ancient History at A level by Dr Langstaff who was also present at the ceremony.  She intends to study Classics at university and plans to spend her prize money on books for the course.
