image026Fraser Hunter, National Museums Scotland
Wednesday 18th May 7.30pm Aldborough Village Hall

“Celts: Art and Identity” has been described as “the first major British exhibition in 40 years to tell the story of the Celts” … basically, if you have any interest in the Celts and Celtic art this show is for you.
It first opened at The British Museum in September 2015 and has now transferred to The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh until September 2016.
Coinciding with this major exhibition, this talk will consider the many different things which are called Celtic art. It will consider what these different “Celtic arts” say about connections and differences across Europe, and consider the role of decoration in making powerful objects and creating powerful ideas.
Fraser Hunter, curator of the exhibition, is also principal curator of Iron Age and Roman collections at the National Museum of Scotland where he has worked since 1991.
