New Exhibition: Inspired by Stonehenge
A new exhibition featuring memorabilia about Stonehenge opened at Wiltshire Heritage Museum (England) on 16 May 2009. Inspired by Stonehenge focuses on the changing ways the monument has inspired and been experienced by visitors throughout the past two centuries. Well-known archaeologist and broadcaster Julian Richards, has, as guest curator, compiled the exhibition and written the exhibition catalogue.
The exhibition contains a variety of objects, graphics, music and moving images. Youngsters are encouraged to be 'Inspired by Stonehenge', and are invited to send in photographs of their own Stonehenge models for display in the Museum over the summer.
Julian Richards will be presenting a lecture 'Souvenirs of Stonehenge, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly' at Devizes Town Hall on 18 July at 2.30pm. The Museum's Summer Family Day on 2 August will have events and activities linked to Stonehenge. The exhibition runs from Saturday 16 May to 20 September. Usual admission charges apply. Tickets for Julian Richards' lecture are available from the Museum and cost £10. The Family Day will take place on Sunday 2 August, 11am – 4pm.
