Description

Make the "classical connection!". Filled with the magic of mythology; images of sports and romance; exploits of appealing superheroes (like Hercules), and epic adventures of the Trojan War, every piece of Greek and Roman art has a story to tell. Introduce budding artists and archaeologists to these ancient treasures in the most delightful way. Children will see how to distinguish Greek from Roman culture; learn why the Romans were the "perfect copycats"; find out how to read the images (often of heroes and legends) painted on pots and pictures; meet the gods and goddesses who ruled religion - and the emperors who nearly ruled the world; take a glance at the original Olympics; and step into history during one of the most exciting times of civilisation. It will be the most unforgettable visit to a museum ever!
