Explore how to really appreciate the art, skill and aesthetics of ancient art. See how art has been a part of our lives for thousands of years in our man-made items and personal art of jewellery, and discover how newly invented materials created fresh expressions; after all, even the flint tools of our early ancestors have an exquisite beauty in their material, craftsmanship and form.
Tricks of the Trade: Art and Archaeology - Explore the art of an archaeologist’s key dating materials – first, exquisite stone items, and then pottery - and consider Neolithic pots, exuberant Minoan designs, later black- and red-figure Athenian vases and Roman varieties.
Recreating Humanity: Sculpture through the Ages - Follow the astonishing development of sculpture and the concept of human representation from the beautiful early Cycladic marble through the formal Egyptian figures and on to the innovative Greeks and to the distinctive Romans; see how they have influenced our art today.
House and Gardens: Through the Ancient Keyhole - Consider interior decoration since Egyptian wall paintings to the Ancient Greeks’ and Romans’ colourful frescoes and artful mosaics; the ancients speak to us across the millennia through the art in their tombs (homes for the dead) and in their vibrant homes and daily lives.
