Myths and Mortals: Life in Ancient Times


31 October 2020 - November 2021

Time

11.00AM – 3.00PM

Open Wednesday to Sunday

Venue: UC Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities

The ancient Greeks and Romans came from all walks of life, some barely survived in slavery while others led rich and fulfilling lives. Whether they were at the bottom or the top, the Greeks and Romans formed communities between families, neighbours and armies. These communities shaped people’s identities, cultures and beliefs, just as our own communities shape us today. Marble sculpture, elaborate vases and everyday wares speak of epic myths and stories, the rise and fall of empires, family life and glory in sport and war – all of which were important aspects of life in ancient times.

Sponsored by the University of Canterbury Foundation.
