and roman theatre timeline
The masks made during the Greek and Roman
periods actually extended over several hundred years, and the mask styles
changed dramatically over this time. Below is a visual timeline of
mask pictures that we have been collecting.
Students and educators, feel free to use this
information, but, please, do not use this timeline or the pictures for
commercial purposes. You may create a link to this page from
other sites, but do not copy the timeline to other sites.
If you are curious about where the places
on this timeline are located, please visit our
Map of the Greek World.
If you catch a typo, or see a correction that
