How and why are copies different from the ‘real thing’? Physical replicas, plaster casts, digital reproductions and 3D prints are increasingly being used in our museums and libraries. What makes a replica different from a fake? Are they unique objects in their own right or just shadows of their originals? Should we call them copies, replicas or something else entirely? In this panel discussion, jointly organised by the Museum of Classical Archaeology and the Cambridge University Library, our specialists invite you to think about the complicated processes, skills and judgements involved in the production of all kinds of replicas, both digital and physical.  Followed by a drinks reception and opportunity to mingle with our experts at the Museum.
