UCL Festival of the Arts

Katie Meheux revisits the work of Sir Mortimer Wheeler in a special event as part of the UCL Festival of the Arts on 28 May.

Archaeologist Sir Mortimer Wheeler was an early television star but his contribution to British archaeology has been overshadowed by his personal charisma and media success. 

His work is revisited using his letters and personal papers to show his energy and authority, his work at the Museum of London, in India, and his concern for the protection of monuments in war zones.

The UCL Festival of the Arts showcases the world-leading research produced in the UCL Faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences.
