'Dark Peak' by Rose Ferraby

Archaeology creates connections across time and between people. It is a process through which to explore our changing relationship with the world. The sense of wonder and discovery that archaeology brings is what attracts so many of us to explore the past. The more we see and learn, the better able we are to imagine vanished places and people. How might art capture these elusive stories and feelings found in archaeological landscapes and materials? And how do the shared processes involved in art and archaeology open up new perspectives on the past?
