Live screening of an exclusive lecture for Members.

Curator St John Simpson presents an introduction to the forthcoming exhibition about the Scythians.

The exhibition will explore aspects of life and death on the Russian steppe and the fringes of civilisation during the time of the Assyrians, Greeks and Achaemenid Persians. The lecture will look at the first discoveries of gold objects in Siberia during the reign of Peter the Great, and will show how archaeology has changed our view of who made and used them.

Includes a complimentary drink.

Please note that this is a live relay of the lecture that will be taking place in the BP Lecture Theatre next door.
