Master Class at the Archaeological Museum

The recently re-opened Museo Arqueológico Nacional in Madrid holds a truly spectacular array of artistic treasures that make up the complex history of the land known as Spain.

This 3 hour Master Class will help you understand the different layers of Spain’s earliest history through the various civilizations that settled and developed across the Peninsula. Our itinerary focuses on a discussion of the significance of the exhibits selected by us.  Our careful choice of artifacts from the vast collection in the Museum includes examples of Prehistoric artistic expression, Iberian sculptures, magnificent Visigothic gold crowns and exquisite ivory carvings from the Middle Ages.

Learn about the importance of the exchanges between East and West which took place in this land for millennia and their lasting influence on Spanish society to this day. This specially-designed itinerary of the National Archaeological Museum helps you visualize how different cultures shaped the landscape and the material culture of Spain across time.

This is a truly engaging learning experience designed and led by a fully qualified Art History university professor, Dr. Almudena Cros (BA Hons, MA, PhD Warwick University), with extensive teaching experience and specialist knowledge.  Almudena has lived in Venice and Rome and she has led university study trips to archaeological sites in Spain and Italy (Segóbriga, Italica, Rome, Ostia Antica, Pompeii)
