The Exonian Mysteries

The Exonian Mysteries was created as an event run by the Student Staff Liaison Committee and the Classics Society, to showcase the extra-curricular activities and opportunities available to students studying Classics and Ancient History at Exeter University.  Coincidentally held on the night of the new moon, it was decided that a ‘mystery’ element should be added to the event.  Students were greeted by Dr Sharon Marshall, who assumed the role of Chief Priestess for the evening, and received riddle clues guiding them to stalls which held information about different opportunities open to students. We were delighted to welcome representatives from Pegasus Journal, The Undergraduate Journal, The Classical Association, and the Ipplepen Archaeological Project.
