Insights is our new online journal where members of the Kallos team will explore a range of ancient objects and subjects in depth, including those gallery-centred, and inspired by the wider art world.
Whilst we are all confined to our homes Kallos will share weekly posts, hopefully to offer a little bit of respite and distraction! We hope you enjoy reading these features as much as we do researching them.
