Module overview

In this module we will examine how knowledge about the past is presented in museum exhibition and display. We will look at current practices in exhibition design and discuss the contemporary literature on communicating heritage to a range of audiences. You will then work in groups and present an oral presentation prior to completion of an exhibition proposal on a subject or theme relating to archaeology and heritage.
