Funny Animation Shows 2,500-Year-Old Greek Party Depicted On Vase

Images on this 2,500-year-old vase have been animated to show what life was like in ancient Greece.

The animated scenes depict ancient drinking parties, chatting, playing music and games. You can see all this acting out before your eyes.

The creator behind this project is Mai Musié of Oxford University who teamed up with the Panoply Vase Animation Project following an award from the Oxford University Knowledge Exchange Fund.They now hope this animation will be used by teachers and lecturers to support their teaching of topics related to ancient Greece

“The cup’s decoration comes to life in the animation, with a scene of drinking, chatting, and playing music and games now acted out before your eyes.We hope it will be used by teachers, students and anyone else who has an interest in seeing classical history brought to life.” Dr Sonya Nevin, co-director of the Panoply Vase Animation Project said.

The project is the latest initiative by Classics in Communities, a project involving Oxford University, the Iris Project, and Cambridge University.

“Our aim is to promote the teaching of Latin and Ancient Greek at state schools in the UK. This animation is just the latest way in which we hope to engage teachers and students in these fascinating subjects,” Mai Musié said.
