What We Do

The Ozymandias Project consists of a bi-monthly podcast, Archaeogaming live events, and provides consulting and coaching services. On the podcast, we speak with thought leaders from academia and the entertainment industry. Our founder and host, Lexie Henning, a Classicist with expertise on Ancient Greece, engages in thoughtful discussions with her guests focused on exploring the ancient world through the lens of contemporary storytelling and examines the practical applicability of a degree in ancient studies in modern society. Through our Archaeogaming events streamed live on Twitch, we introduce audiences to a game-based learning model and are currently designing custom Archaeogaming modules for classroom usage. We offer consulting services for creating and customizing lesson plans / curricula related to Classics and the ancient studies. We can also provide subject matter expertise for media projects (movies, TV, video games, etc.), and coaching for students, instructors, and professionals interested in learning more about Classics and the other ancient disciplines.
