Painting of Silchester: Life on the Dig by Jenny Halstead
Last summer Jenny Halstead was artist in residence for the final year of excavations by the University of Reading at the Roman town of Calleva Atrebatum.
Find her sketchbooks and drawings, beside the extraordinary artefacts from Calleva excavated by Victorians in the museum’s Silchester Annexe. Together with all the completed paintings on a screen loop.
Look out for accompanying workshops with Jenny ‘sketchbooks – creative story lines’ and, in response to requests, another chance to join a Practical Introduction to Archaeological Ceramics Study Day, coming up in January 2016.
