Museum of Classical Archaeology Cast Gallery Tour

March 28, 2021 @ 8:00 am - April 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Join Curator Dr. Susanne Turner on this virtual tour of the Museum of Classical Archaeology’s Cast Gallery.

The Museum houses a rather unusual exception: instead of original statues, the Cast Gallery is packed with more than 600 historical plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. But why do we have all these replicas? And how might thinking about copying help us to look differently at ancient sculpture?

The first part of the tour will be available on Youtube on Sunday 28/03/2020, after which parts of the tour will be made available on the following Wednesday and Saturday. All of the videos will be available on demand after they premiere.

Activities were filmed onsite in a socially distanced manner which complied with the government restriction in place at the time of recording.
