RICH MYTHOLOGY / BAD MUSEOLOGY
A solo show of Italian artist Giovanna Petrucchi
Study note: Archaeologists are not only needed to excavate ancient sites, but to interpret them and fit them into our wider national story. Through their investigations, we gain an understanding of where we come from, while groups neglected in historical records can be resurrected. Archaeology also has the power to unite people. It has a public benefit. For local communities, time spent visiting excavations and listening to presentations on discoveries can enhance their relationship with the past and add to their pride in the local area. In turn, this benefits the national well-being by illuminating our shared stories and interconnections.
