The Athenians and others at the Acropolis Museum

Saturday, 20 December, 2014

The ancient world, like the modern, was a world of contact between peoples and civilisations. How did the ancient Athenians view themselves in this diverse environment? How did they define others in relation to themselves? A discussion with the Museum’s Archaeologist-Hosts, held among the remains of the Acropolis sanctuary, about the presence of “foreigners” in ancient Athens through time. Visitors will also come into contact with the ways in which the Athenians expressed their views of foreigners in their art, as well as the external influences on the culture of Attica and Attic influence abroad.

The gallery talk 'The Athenians and others at the Acropolis Museum' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
