Mediterranean Marketplaces: Connecting the Ancient World Exhibition

November 30, 2021 - May 15, 2022

Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East
6 Divinity Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States


Much like today, ancient “consumers” were connected to distant markets. Both basic and precious goods from faraway lands “shipped” to royal palaces, elite estates—sometimes even rural households—and technological advances in craftsmanship and commerce transcended boundaries of language, religion, or culture to spread rapidly. Mediterranean Marketplaces explores how the movement of goods, peoples, and ideas around the ancient Mediterranean transformed the lives and livelihoods of people at all levels of society, driving innovations that had lasting impacts—even on the modern world.
