Gods, Myths & Mortals postcard

Gods, Myths & Mortals brings 8,000 years of Greek civilisation to Melbourne – with each time period celebrating the continuity and transformation which have shaped the Greek world. Carefully curated objects trace the development of tools and technologies to the expansion of trade; the role of myth as a means to understand the known world, to the shift toward monotheism; and the maintenance of identity during foreign rule and the emergence of the Greek state.
