Tails from Mycenae

Tails from Mycenae teaser.jpg

Explore the roles that animals played in the lives of the Mycenaens in a display of rarely-seen objects from the Museum's collection. From octopuses to lions, a wide range of creatures is depicted on Mycenaean objects, giving us a glimpse into the everyday interactions between humans and animals in the Bronze Age.

The Mycenaean menagerie will be creeping, crawling and flying onto display in Bay C of the Cast Gallery from the 15th March.

Curated by Katie Phillips, Caroline Clements, Georgia Lowe and Anya Morrice, Classics undergraduate students from Newnham College, Cambridge.
