Чем вы займетесь

We will start in the entrance hall and take a route round the ground flour galleries (roughly chronologically: early Greece, focusing particularly on the marvellous collection of painted vases, followed by Assyria and Mesopotamia, and briefly visiting Egypt, before travelling forwards in time to the world-class Elgin (Parthenon) Marbles). We will briefly touch upon the relevant arguments pertaining to the Marbles, but focus on their inarguable beauty and quality. We will continue on to the Hellenistic galleries to look at some of the little-known masterpieces of that epoch: glassware. Then, we will go upstairs to see Rome, focusing on lesser-known, but equally important, works of art from throughout Rome's history (from early imperial silver, through to cameo glass, the history of Roman sculpture, into the late Roman period).

This tour will be of particular benefit to those with a grounding and interest in ancient history and archaeology, and for children and young adults (especially those 15+) whose parents wish to give them an educational experience.

I have years of experience working with classical antiquities, including two degrees pertaining to the ancient world (Masters in Classical Archaeology, Oxford; BA in Ancient World, U. of London), and voluntary experience at a number of nationally important museums. I have first-hand experience excavating objects in Turkey and was an events organiser at an academic summer school for children held at Oxford, where I also gave a specialist talk on archaeology. I have been interested in classical art and archaeology, and sharing this interest, for many years.
I am currently applying to study Classics/Art History at grad school in the United States. I have a current CRB check.

He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Time flied during the tour and I learned so much! Don't hesitate to book Chris's tour for a deeper understanding of Roman and Greek History.

Chris is an expert on classic antiquities of the Greek and Roman world and we really enjoyed his tour through the British Museum. He provided historical background for many of the pieces we otherwise wouldn’t have known, and was very engaging. Would highly recommend!

Chris provided an excellent tour of the Greek and Roman sections of the British Museum, including the Enlightenment Room which is truly unique. The collection is the most extensive of any that we've ever seen. Highly recommended for guests that have an interest in ancient Greece and Rome.
