Summary: A memento featuring more than 170 of the British Museum objects on show in the exhibition Ancient Greeks: Athletes, Warriors and Heroes. These objects tell a story of the competitive spirit and intense rivalry of the Ancient Greeks, which flourished in sporting and battle arenas and inspired excellence in music and drama. They reveal how competition underpinned all aspects of Ancient Greek life, generating a vibrant and innovative society that endures in the artefacts and stories surviving today.
