Curator's Tour: Casting Light on Classical Sculpture

Join Curator Dr Susanne Turner on this virtual tour of the Museum of Classical Archaeology's Cast Gallery.

The Museum houses a rather unusual exception: instead of original statues, the Cast Gallery is packed with more than 600 historical plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. But why do we have all these replicas? And how might thinking about copying help us to look differently at ancient sculpture?
