tracking colour - the Colours of Greek and Roman Sculpture


Greek and Roman marble statues were not set up in blazing white. They were colourful. We are now on the track of the colours that remain on sculptures in our collection.

The Petrie Project


The famous English Egyptologist, W.M.F. Petrie, is often called, “the Father of Archaeology”. The Egyptian Collection at the Glyptotek includes many fascinating finds from his and his contemporaries’ excavations at the beginning of the 20th century. They are now being studied in relation to their original contexts.
