Description

Meet at 5.45pm by the sarcophagus (pictured) in Gallery 71 for prompt start at 18.00, finish 20.00

The Etruscans flourished in Northern Italy at the same time as the city of Rome was growing.They were famed for their beautiful tombs and metalwork. They developed their own take on Greek myth and had great influence on Roman culture. On this guided tour with Cathy Mercer, we will explore the highlights of the British Museum's magnificent collection.

This tour will stimulate ideas on how Rome grew, absorbing other cultures, and also how myth developed and changed. It will be of particular interest to Open University students studying A330 Myth, A276 Latin, A340 Roman Empire and A229 Introduction to the Classical World.
