Frontiers: Exploring the Edge

26th February-20th April 2018

 Frontiers is a multi-site exhibition curated by third year Museum Studies students, showcasing the University of Reading's diverse collections.

The Ure Museum is hosting:

Defined by Dress: Frontiers of Ancient Athenian Identity on Pottery

Your Clothing can tell a lot about you as an individual. In Athens it was no different! This exhibition explores these frontiers of identity. Visit the Ure Museum to find out how the ancient Athenians communicated their gender, status and ethnicity through their clothing. Come and see a reconstruction of an Ionic chiton, the most common dress worn by the Athenians from the 5th century BC.
