Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes

7th Feb – 4th May 2009

Ancient Greeks: Athletes, warriors and heroes is a major touring exhibition from the British Museum, and will be on display in The Burrell Collection from Feb-May 2009.

The exhibition focuses on the theme of competition in the Ancient Greek world, expressed through sport, politics, drama and music.

Ancient Greeks features one of the largest selections of Greek artefacts ever loaned by the British Museum.  It includes wonderful examples of black- and red-figured vases and marble sculptures.

The many interactive exhibits included in the Ancient Greeks exhibition make this a brilliant introduction to the ancient world for children and families.

This event is unticketed and free.
