Event description

Description

We associate Classical Greece with the impassive and remarkably uniform young men that populate the Parthenon frieze and classical gravestones. But we rarely ask why these young men dominate Classical art. Prof Robin Osborne looks at the revolution that brought the Classical man into existence, and the complete transformation of values that these Classical figures carry with them.

Access information: G19 is on the ground floor and has step-free access, with space for wheel-chairs. Seating is wooden lecture-room fold down chairs and space can be restricted. The room can get very warm and stuffy during sunny weather. For further access information, please do not hestitate to get in touch or visit our website: https://www.classics.cam.ac.uk/museum/visit-us/access
