Explore the many ways trade shaped everyday life in the ancient Mediterranean in this free exhibit presented by the Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East.

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.

See for hours and reservations (advance registration required).
