Unfortunately due to scheduling changes and last minute room-hires, the de-install was not quite as planned - but all went well as the NNP mitigated the problems. The FV team worked hard, packing up work that the NNP team had removed from the walls. We delivered the English Heritage items (Birdoswald poetry banner and interpretation for permanent display, Chesters votive plaques ready for installation at Chesters Fort and the Corbridge felted pots ready for display in Corbridge until Easter). The Senhouse altar is returning to Maryport for permanent display. Tullie House have their original artwork on display plus a photo of the second version for their website. I have negotiated with Segedunum to take the 1:20 scale model of a Roman barge sent to us by our Dutch partners, so this is going to Segedunum when I return the Arbeia face-pots to Hadrian’s Primary School at South Sheilds.
The GNM took down their installation this week after hosting it for 7 months and the Spotlight exhibition for 5 months - fantastic! Thank you. I will be collecting the work and looking for other opportunities to show this at other locations.
We still have to re-install the gateway at Vindolanda but hope to have this up by half term in their Education room and the Fort Magna banner needs to go up in the classroom at The Roman army Museum in time for its opening in the spring.
I still need to send the ISBN number to English Heritage for them to publish the artwork and poetry on their website……another legacy from the project!
