In Conversation With

In Conversation With


In Conversation With is a new weekly series where we ask friends of the Museum to tell us about their favourite object – and what it means to them. We'll be speaking to members of the Faculty, members of the University and a few surprise guests to tell us (and you!) about the casts which make their hearts beat a little faster.

A new In Conversation With will be added on Monday every week until December 2019.


Mary Beard and Aphrodite

Oedipus (aka Rosy Sida) and the Nike of Samothrace

Museum of Classical Archaeology, Cambridge
