Greek and Roman life (Room 69)
This gallery will be partially closed until the end of February 2013
1450 BC – AD 500
Room 69 takes a cross-cultural look at the public and private lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The objects on display have been chosen to illustrate themes such as women, children, household furniture, religion, trade and transport, athletics, war, farming and many more.
Around the walls supplementary displays illustrate individual crafts, on one side of the room, and Greek mythology, on the opposite side.
