HOPLITES! Greeks at War Animation: It follows a hoplite soldier as he prepares and goes to war.

Hoplites! Greeks at War is a new animation created for Panoply's 'Every Soldier has a Story' exhibition at the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, University of Reading.

Every Soldier has a Story is a 'Communicating Ancient Greece and Rome’ project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council through The Archive for Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (www.apgrd.ox.ac.uk).

Further funding for the animation was given generously by Yana Zarifi-Sistovari of the Thiasos Theatre Company.

The project launch was kindly sponsored by the Department of Classics at the University of Reading, by the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, and by Bloomsbury Academic Publishing.
