thenickelguy Posted December 7, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 7, 2022 I have been taking online courses on the Hillsdale College website. I plan to take them all. I have finished 11 so far of the 36 or so mini courses. They are free and on average, I would estimate there are about 8 hours of lectures involved in each. Now I know that these are very much condensed courses, but I am learning a lot and take what I learn there to look around elsewhere on the internet to enhance and broaden my knowledge on each subject. For ancient coin collectors, these two courses have given me a better understanding of the people of the times. Not so much a connection to the coinage. But wow, I find this exciting. Some of you are probably well educated in ancient history and might find this old hat but for people like me, you might be very surprised. The story of Athens and Sparta andThe Rise and Fall of the Roman Republic Learning about Cato the Elder, then the civil war with Marius and Sulla blew my mind. I'm a pretty old guy but there's always something new to learn. and next I plan to take Great Books 101: Ancient to Medieval 13 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
