Join Curator Dr Susanne Turner as she explores how thinking about viewers and viewing help us to see and understand ancient art differently.

When we visit the Museum of Classical Archaeology and step into the cast gallery, we are locked in the present: we can't step into ancient sandals and view through Greek and Roman eyes. So how can we understand ancient viewers? Did viewers in the classical past see something different when they looked at classical sculpture? Join Curator Dr Susanne Turner as she explores how thinking about viewers and viewing help us to see and understand ancient art differently.
