Another Awesome Field Trip

In keeping with our Greek and Roman studies, we visited the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, CA. This is an awesome museum. It's like a Roman villa with atriums, gardens, and Roman pools, statues, and mosaics. There are also hundreds of Greek artifacts. Too bad many of the Roman antiquities were called back to Rome.

We were able to see a special exhibit of Greek theater.

red-and black-figure pottery.



The story of Achillies on a coffin.


This isn't an artifact; it's just a huge leaf!
