This gallery features the Shefton collection, one of the most important collections of Greek and Etruscan art and archaeology in the country. Find out what it was like to be an Ancient Greek and how this great civilisation was shaped by the mountainous terrain that helped to create many different city states. Visitors can listen to stories of Greek myths, and a huge frieze portrays images taken from the actual objects which are displayed down the centre of the gallery.Great North Museum: Hancock
