Ode to Grecian Urns

We headed back to the Ashmolean today to do another kids trail — this time one called Various Vases.

I now know the names (chous, pelike, amphora, lekythos, calyx-krater, volute-krater) and purposes of many types of Grecian vases dating between 600-100 BCE.

Jane Anne’s favorite vase

Molly’s (because it was shiny)

Wonder where she gets an interest in taking pictures?  Hmmm…
