Greek Education in Britain


The first known Greek who arrived in Britain and wrote about his discoveries was Pytheas in the 4th century BC, followed  two centuries later by Poseidonios Stoikos, who was the second famous Greek explorer of Celtic Britain. The later arrived in England in his search for the originating country from which the zinc was arriving in the Mediterranean. Many years later Aristovoulos the Cypriot at the beginning of the 1st century AD was sent to Britain to preach Christianity and the Gospel.

In a way these three important Greek figures were the first to be linked with writing about and  teaching in Britain and have therefore contributed to the ideal of the Greek Education abroad.
