The Citi exhibition Arctic: culture and climate 28 May – 23 August 2020 British Museum Our next major exhibition will look at life in the Arctic. Far from the inhospitable hinterland it is often imagined to be, the Arctic has been home to rich cultures for nearly 30,000 years. The objects in this immersive show will range from 28,000-year-old mammoth ivory jewellery to modern snow mobiles, revealing the resourcefulness of indigenous peoples in the Arctic.
Our 2020 program will focus on the multi-period archaeological complex at Caraun Point on the northern coast of Achill Island. Caraun Point is a small sand-covered peninsula jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. It is well-known for its rich archaeological remains, including an early medieval enclosure, a children’s burial ground, several shell middens and an early modern village of vernacular houses. In 2019, three drystone houses which date to the Post-Medieval period were excavated.
