GATINEAU, QC, Oct. 31, 2013 /CNW/ – Over 500 treasures of Greek antiquity will be showcased at the Canadian Museum of Civilization beginning in June 2015 as the Museum presents The Greeks – From Agamemnon to Alexander the Great. It is the most comprehensive exhibition about Ancient Greece to tour North America in a generation.

Presenting outstanding artifacts from 22 Greek Museums, the exhibition will invite visitors on a journey through 5,000 years of Greek culture, from the Neolithic Era to the age of Alexander the Great. The artifacts — many of which have never been exhibited outside Greece — include the iconic bust of Alexander the Great from Pella, the impressive statues of Archaic-period Kouroi, and golden jewellery from famous tombs.
