The Pitt Rivers Museum showcases the work of students from London's Royal College of Art who specialise in the crafts of goldsmithing, silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery.
The students' work is based on responses to selected artefacts from the museum's collection, engaging in dialogue between objects from different eras and cultures. The items on display have been created using a mixture of innovative modern technology and traditional techniques.
The Pitt Rivers Museum was founded in 1884 when Lt Gen. Pitt Rivers, one of the world's leading figures in the development of archaelogy and evolutionary anthropology, donated 18,000 artefacts as a gift to the fledgling museum. Now home to over half a million treasured objects, many donated by explorers, the museum houses one of the world's great collections.
