This workshop will discuss and interpret ancient artworks in the museum’s collection, ranging from Ancient Egypt to Roman Britain, stopping off with the Greeks and Etruscans along the way. The talk and handling session, given by Will Leveritt of the Department of Classics, will explore several questions. What does the decoration on objects tell us about the people who created them? What difficulties and dangers does a modern viewer face when trying to interpret the imagery of antiquity? How can we best move from looking at objects behind glass, to understanding the cultures behind them? Please note: Maximum of 10 people per session. Groups will be meeting in the Museum.
