Currently the growing Brick Classicists Empire or BCE (previously Lego Classicists) consists of over 100 figures including Prof. Dame Mary Beard (Cambridge University and TV broadcaster), Stephen Fry (actor, TV broadcaster and author), Prof. Massimo Osanna (Director General of Museums, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, Italy), Prof. Dimitrios Pandermelis (Director, Acropolis Museum), Joanna Lumley (actor and TV broadcaster), Barack Obama (44th President of the United States of America), Dr. Kara Cooney (Egyptologist and TV broadcaster), Prof. John Bennet (Director, British School at Athens), Raksha Dave (archaeologist and TV broadcaster) and Bettany Hughes (author and TV broadcaster). See full list below.

 

Brick Classicist

Anyone who is an academic, scholar, conservator, archivist, librarian, historian who works in the study of classics (the ancient worlds of Greece & Rome, traditional classics).

Anyone who deals with any other serious study of the ancient world of any other civilization across the world, such as

Egyptology.

Honorary Brick Classicist

Anyone who works in the discipline of history (ancient and modern) who is promoting the wider use of the recording and use of history and ancient history and language teachers outside of tertiary education.
 
Anyone, including people outside the discipline of ancient and modern history, such as artists, who have shown great interest in, or provided a significant new perspective to, the study or understanding of ancient history.

 

Honorable Mention Brick Classicist

Anyone who has had a connection to the work of ancient world study and engagement, even when their work is seemingly unconnected, but without whose help it would not be possible.
