The slide presentation covers a wide range of topics, with a strong emphasis on architecture, such as the Parthenon, The Elgin Marbles, The Acropolis temples, and the three Ancient Greek "Orders": Doric, Ionic and Corinthian.

It also covers aspects of Greek Art including sculpture and pottery decoration, particularly Black- and Red-Figure ware.

Also included in the presentation are large clear close-ups of the original artefacts being discussed, so that the whole audience together can view what are often quite small objects; coins, brooches, ceramic drinking vessels and plates etc, before they are individually passed around for handling.
