The Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology

Places to Visit

The Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, owned by the University of Reading and an integral part of the Department of Classics, contains ceramics and other artefacts that evidence the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, especially Greek, Egyptian and Cypriote.

The collection primarily consists of material from the Greek and Greco-Roman civilisations of the Mediterranean, most notably Greek and Etruscan ceramics and terracottas. Other artifacts include prehistoric pottery, as well as metal and stone artifacts of Greek and Roman date. There is also an important collection of Egyptian antiquities, ranging from the Pre-dynastic to the Roman period.
