Focusing on the Parthenon sculptures, this presentation will introduce students to the ancient Greek cultural, social and historic context in which they were created and consider the impact the ancient Greeks had on western culture over the next two millennia.

Themes include buildings as symbols of power and ideas, representations in art of the 'civilised' and 'barbarian', material culture as evidence and religion.
