Sicily, Culture and Conquest – British Museum, London

From 21 April to 14 August, the British Museum in London is hosting Sicily, Culture and Conquest:

“The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has been shaped by waves of conquest and settlement over 4,000 years.

“This new special exhibition tells Sicily’s fascinating stories – from the arrival of the ancient Greeks, to the extraordinary period of enlightenment under Norman rule.

“Discover a cosmopolitan island where the unique mix of peoples gave rise to an extraordinary cultural flowering. The art and objects they produced are some of the most beautiful and important in the history of the Mediterranean.”
