UCAS Preparation Morning – Classics


As part of the UCAS preparation morning, two classics students visited the local Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology on the University of Reading campus.

After looking around the museum and talking to staff and students about Classics at university and what it entails, they each selected an artefact to research further before attending a university-style seminar with Ms Lopresti.

We discovered that the foot-shaped clay pots were for holding oils, and the terracotta turtles were created as votives. We also discussed the political importance of coins in the ancient world, not only for trade but also to spread the image of the current ruler amongst the people.
