Ure View: bringing ancient Greece to life

Great initiative and project. Well done!!

Royal Pavilion & Brighton Museums

Ure View is one of four regional projects that are part of World Stories South East. To celebrate the opening of the exhibition a family event was held at the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology on 5 May 2012, with the exhibition open until 31 August 2012.

The event showcased the sculptures and digital animations that were inspired by the Greek pottery held in the museum’s collections.

The museum houses around 2,000 ancient Greek and Egyptian archaeological finds in a museum at the University of Reading. Although small, the displays of the collections give a fascinating glimpse into ancient life.

The young people led the development of the animations and sculpture, giving their perspective on ancient life by interpreting the pottery through their eyes.
