It's Ancient, Not Dead

During my four years at university studying ancient history I noticed that there was no where that I could buy Classics-themed goodies for the friends I made on my courses.

After my degree finished I made an attempt at self-employment while working part time. It didn't work. In the end I moved to London after getting a full-time job in the archives sector.

But even with full-time work, I never forgot that the ancient world seemed to have been forgotten by retailers. It may be a niche market, but there's lots of people out there who love history, who love the eternal cities of Rome and Athens, who remember doing latin at school but never pursued it further, or who grew up with tales of old gods and goddesses.

To me the ancient world is still interesting. It was not a dusty world of boring people. It was vibrant and colourful, with it's fair share of controversy and fame.

I like to think that there's something in my shop for anyone with even the vaguest interest in ancient history. Please check back regularly as there's an entire notebook of ideas by my side, and bit by bit my lovely little corner is going to expand :)

The ancient world is still very much alive, let's help revive it!

Welcome to Creative Classics.

Creative Classics is a UK-based business started by me! I have a BA and MA in ancient history from the University of London and currently work in the civil service.

I believe that the ancient world is not a dusty place found in a boring book. It was colourful and vibrant, filled with life and noise, and I want to recreate that for everyone.

Ancient history is a dying subject. But it shouldn't be.

Be proud to be a Classicist!

Payment must be by Paypal only for all international customers.

I will also accept cheques from UK customers ONLY. Please allow up to 5 working days for the cheque to clear before your purchase is sent out.
**SHIPPING COSTS!** Please note that Etsy is currently running an experiment which removes shipping costs from our listing pages and instead includes then only when you add items to your shopping cart.

My shipping costs are as follows (all items dispatched from the UK);

You can Google "pound sterling into *your currency*" and it will bring up a handy convertor for you to use to give you a rough idea of costs.


All UK purchases will be sent out by first class mail.

All international orders will be sent out by first class airmail.

When possible I may recycle card and bubblewrap as packaging material, but I will never do this at the risk of the product being damaged in transit, nor will I use anything covered in mud, or bubbles that are distinctly less bubbly :)
