'Breaking Ground' 75th anniversary exhibition now open
11 May 2012
The 75th anniversary exhibition 'Breaking Ground: 75 Years of Pioneering Archaeology' is now on display in the Institute's A.G. Leventis Gallery until February 2013.
The Breaking Ground exhibition, created by MA Museum Studies students as part of the Institute's 75th anniversary celebrations, looks at how the people, practices, and ideas of London's Institute of Archaeology have changed the way we explore and understand the past.
Since it was founded in 1937, the Institute of Archaelogy has been a place of innovation. Individuals affiliated with the Institute have been pioneers in the field of excavation technique, conservation, archaeological photography and interpretive theory.
This tradition of progress has continued throughout the Institute's history. The Institute, with a truly global outlook, is now one of the largest and most prominent archaeology departments in the world undertaking research on five continents and in the Pacific and offering a diverse range of courses and fieldwork opportunities.
Any enquiries about the exhibition may be directed to the Breaking Ground Exhibition Team.
