The Museum of Classical Archaeology is found on the first floor of the University Faculty of Classics, and is home to one of the world's largest collections of casts of Greek and Roman sculpture. The museum's collections cover a time period dating from 1700 BCE to 400 CE, with the Cast Gallery showcasing some of the most renowned items of ancient Greek art. Visitors should be sure to take in the Peplos Kore, a type of statue of young women which were used to mark graves. The museum hosts regular events, talks, tours and family activities so there is plenty going on at the site all year round.
