Explore the rich, interconnected cultures of the sun-drenched ancient Mediterranean—and discover anew how these cultures continue to influence and inspire our world today. Worlds Intertwined, a suite of galleries at the Penn Museum, features more than 1,400 ancient artifacts, including marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, metalwork, mosaics, glass vessels, gold and silver coins, and painted pottery. The objects, drawn from the Museum’s outstanding Mediterranean collection, help tell the remarkable, interwoven stories of the ancient Greeks (1050-31 BCE); the Etruscan peoples, the first great rulers of central Italy (800-100 BCE); and their empire-building Roman successors (500 BCE-500 CE).
