CHRONOLOGICAL TABLES AND SUMMARIES
Cyril Edward Robinson (1884 - 1981) was an English historian, writer and teacher at Winchester College in Hampshire. He is the author of a number of works on ancient Greece and Rome.
Robinson was born in Bury St. Edmunds, UK, in 1884. The son of a clergyman, he excelled in his studies at both Marlborough college and Magdalen college, Oxford, earning distinctions at both. In 1909 he became a teacher at Winchester College, Hampshire, UK, where he remained until his retirement in 1945.
Robinson was an inspired and gifted teacher who taught classics using the Socratic method. He believed that knowledge and truth were already present in his students and that his task was to draw it forth. Few of his former pupils would doubt that he succeeded brilliantly.
His lucid mind, clear prose and elegant style make his historical works among the greatest of the 20th century.
