Retelling the Ancient Past

Each year the module Displaying the Past: Museum Studies offers students the opportunity to study museums in greater depth and introduce them to the myriad ways in which different museums operate. Students at the University of the Highlands & Islands have come together to create an online exhibition featuring items that showcase an aspect of history that fascinates them. Pulling together the passions of students scattered across Scotland from such various places as Orkney, Mull, Edinburgh and the Black Isle, in this exhibit you will find a wide range of objects ranging from a Green Man to teapots, ancient societies and cemeteries, and the captivating stories about their backgrounds.
