Martin Heemskerck Hanging Gardens of Babylon

Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Martin Heemskerck


Course launches have just completed and over 1300 students have embarked on another term of online learning with us.  This term we have launched 3 new courses: Archaeology of the Bible Lands The Number Mysteries and English Landscape Gardens: 1650 to the Present Day , and I am very pleased to have discovered an image which combines a biblical garden with a vaguely  Escher like (that’s mathematical!) ambiance.

Having been in involved in the development of all our courses, I do think that these are 3 of the most enjoyable courses we have ever created and the students on them are going to have a fabulous time.

Enrollments have closed for this term, but if any of these, or our other 50+ online courses look interesting to you, do come and visit to make your choices for January, when we will also have a new Macroeconomics course available to help you understand what economists think is happening to the world right now.
