Special displays

One of the showcases in Gallery 21 (the Greek and Roman gallery) is reserved for temporary displays that change two or three times a year. This allows us to show objects from our reserve collections that would not otherwise be seen, and also to discuss aspects of conservation, research and display in more depth. Below are some of the special displays that have been seen in Gallery 21 since it reopened in 2010.
