Getting ready for Warriors
3 July 2012
Preparations for the September exhibition Warriors of the Plains are well underway. A team from the British Museum, lead by exhibition curator Max Carocci, came last month to coordinate the design and publicity, plan accompanying activities and examine selected objects from RAMM’s collections that will be included in the displays.
Max Carucci was delighted to see the RAMM’s collections: “Exeter’s Warriors of the Plains collections are exquisite. They are incredibly important historically both for the museum and the people they came from. They really need to be brought to the public’s attention”.
Warriors of the Plains: 200 years of Native North American honour and ritual will run from 22 September to 13 January. Produced by the British Museum, the exhibition focuses on the material culture of Native North American Indians of the Plains between 1800 and the present, and the importance of the objects in a social and ceremonial context.
