Greece & Rome

The fountainhead of
Western civilisation

The Ancient Greek and Roman worlds are viewed as the root of western civilisation, whose innovations included art, drama, literature, mathematics, philosophy, democratic government, law and technological warfare.

Housed on the ground and first floors, our Greek and Roman objects paint a broad picture of everyday life: from banqueting and mythology, as expressed in the exquisite red-and-black figure pottery, to our fine display of marble heads, busts, and life-size and over life-size sculpture, bronze figurines, mosaics, wall-paintings, gold jewellery and coins.
