Ashmolean Museum of Art

A major exhibition titled “Heracles to Alexander the Great: Treasures from the Royal Capital of Macedonia, a Hellenic Kingdom in the Age of Democracy” opens next week at Oxford University’s Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology.
This major exhibition will showcase the treasures of Aegae, the royal capital of the kingdom of Macedonia.
More than 500 extraordinary new discoveries from the royal tombs of Aegae will be on display for the very first time at the Ashmolean.
The main goal of the exhibition is to promote the evolution of the Macedonian kingdom and the era of Alexander the Great. Alexander the Great is believed to be a descendant of the mythical hero, Hercules. The exhibition is co-organized with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the IZ Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities.
The exhibition opens on April 7th and will run through August 29th.
