An exhibition exploring archaeological practice today

Curated by Javier Martínez Jiménez

Archaeological illustration, especially when aimed at the general public, is the result of the collaboration between artists and archaeologists. It offers a way of reconstructing the past based on scientific data that can help the public understand archaeological remains better.

This exhibition presents original artwork by Zofia Guertin and Sofia Greaves. It combines artistic interpretations of archaeological remains, technical drawings of finds, and how both can combine in reconstructions used to bring the past to live in the context of the Aeclanum Project in Southern Italy, where there has been a lot of outreach towards the local community.

You can view this exhibition during museum opening hours - we are currently operating on a booking system. Book your ticket to avoid disappointment.
