An introduction to the classical world

Saturday 17 March 2018, 10.30-16.30
BP Lecture Theatre

This study day, in partnership with the Open University, plays to the strengths of the Museum's collection, especially the wonders of ancient Greece.

British Museum and guest speakers present lectures, talks and a film, on an array of topics, including the sculptures of the Parthenon, the importance of the kouros, architectural and figural sculpture, Greek vases (and their portrayal of myth and history), and multicultural connections in the classical world.
