This study day is related to a new Open University course. It explores what myth is, how Greek and Roman myths connect, and what their context was.
Lectures and talks covering characters such as Hippolytus, Aeneas, Io, Phaeton, Europa, Apollo and Diana will be illustrated through painting, prints, drawings, sculpture, coins and medals, largely from the Museum's collection.
Speakers will include British Museum curators.
Open to Open University students and members of the public.
