'Konnichawa' means 'hello' in Japanese, and that is how I was greeted by Yukiko Saito from Kyoto Seika University in Japan who visited World Museum this week. Yukiko was awarded a grant by the Japanese government to come to the UK to help her university research on the fascinating topic of colour in antiquity.
Yukiko also writes reports for a classical society in Japan, and I was very pleased when she asked me whether she could feature World Museum's collection of Greek and Roman antiquities. Here you can see Yukiko making notes on our 'Life and Death' case in the Greek section of the Ancient World Gallery on the third floor of World Museum. Her favourite objects in the case are these lovely earrings.
Come and visit the Ancient World Gallery, and let me know which object or objects you like best!
