THE BOTALLACK HOARD Royal Cornwall Museum
RELICS,ARTEFACTS & GOD-DOLLIES FROM THE CONSUMER CULTS THAT THRIVED ON THE SOUTH WEST PENINSULA TOWARDS THE END OF THE SECOUND MILLENIUM
The Museum has invited the Department of Reconstruction to display items from a collection unearthed from a variety of Late Iron Age sources,ruins, middens& other sites of human occupation.
A puzzling diversity of artefacts will be exhibited,offering glimpses of a resourceful people who developed a technology that reflected their dreams.
The functions of these objects remains open to speculation. Re-assembling this jigsaw of fragments from the past has been largely guesswork,informed by the myths & legends from that fabulous age. Lacking any documentary evidence, few clues survive that shed any light on the fate of this advanced culture.
The exhibition,at the ROYAL CORNWALL MUSEUM, River Street TRURO
,will run fromAPRIL 10th—JULY 3rd.2010
