Join Dr Nancy Highcock, Curator for Ancient Mesopotamia in the Department for the Middle East at the British Museum, for a highlight tour to be followed by discussion. 

Ancient Iraq has long been home to many different communities, empires, and religions. What can female figures dating to the time of the Seleucid and Parthian empires (312 BC- AD 242) tell us about the beliefs and practices of this diverse region? 

Safety Information

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our priority. Here's what we're doing to help keep everyone safe, and what you can do to help.

Although it is no longer mandatory, we continue to ask staff and visitors to wear a face-covering if they can when inside our buildings. 

SOCIAL DISTANCING

IF YOU'RE FEELING UNWELL

We will refund tickets to anyone that tests positive or is displaying symptoms of Covid-19 as long as we’re notified at least two hours prior to an event start time.
