On Friday 16th of June the Prehistoric Society invites you to join them for a special one-off members-only after hours curator tour of the Ashmolean exhibition 'Labyrinth: Knossos, Myth and Reality', the first UK exhibition to feature the iconic Bronze Age site of Knossos.

Dr Andrew Shapland (Sir Arthur Evans Curator of Bronze Age and Classical Greece) will lead the tour around the exhibition showcasing 100s of objects that have never left Crete or Greece before, alongside discoveries from the Ashmolean's Sir Arthur Evans Archive and an exclusive experience of Knossos Palace from the acclaimed video game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Tickets are limited to twenty so book your place fast to avoid disappointment. This is a Prehistoric Society MEMBERS ONLY event
