Despite the distance of time, it is possible to catch a glimpse of what death meant for ordinary Greeks and Romans through the artefacts they left behind. ‘Beyond the Grave’ includes poignant inscriptions on tombstones, dramatic scenes in plays, carefully sculpted memorials, and detailed images of funeral rites painted on vases.

All these point to the fact that in ancient times, as now, how we approach the subject of death can reveal a great deal about what each of our cultures values most about life.

Open: Wednesday to Sunday, 11am-3pm

The Teece Museum is also available by appointment Mondays and Tuesdays, 9am-3pm, for school and group visits.
