Exhibition curators Julia Farley and Fraser Hunter introduce some key objects from the exhibition in this Periscope film. The Celts exhibition includes many significant loans from 28 institutions across Europe and the UK, for some of which it is a condition of loan that photography by exhibition visitors is not allowed.
As these loans are spread throughout the gallery, we are unable to allow photography in this space and ask visitors to respect this in order to ensure these fantastic objects are available for all to enjoy when visiting the exhibition. This exhibition has now closed.
