Sanctuary and war

Saturday, 21 March, 2015

War affected the lives of the inhabitants of ancient Athens either directly or indirectly. Its prevention, its handling, the destruction it causes, and the memory of defeat or victory, is reflected in the remains of the sacred fortress of the Acropolis. Visitors will discuss war and its traces and relationship with worship, the walls, military forces and weapons in ancient Athens with the Archaeologist-Hosts using the Museum’s collection as a basis, with rich visual material and within view of the Sacred Rock. The presentation will be enhanced by video projections of the Parthenon frieze.

The gallery talk 'Sanctuary and war' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
