We were appointed by the Society of Antiquaries of London to manage and deliver the design, funding and implementation of the Society’s tercentenary exhibition Making History held at, and in partnership with, the Royal Academy of Arts in 2007. The special exhibition showcased the Society’s treasures, many of which had not been previously on public display, including the spectacular Ribchester helmet and a rare surviving genealogical roll charting the descent of King Henry VI from Adam and Eve. The exhibition then toured four regional museums being adapted for each individual venue and incorporating artefacts of local significance.

We also project managed and lead the content development for the UK travelling version, which was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and which ran until early 2010.
