Today we worked with Jennifer Dunn, Collections Manager at Scarborough Museums Trust. The brief was to creatively photograph ancient relics for the museum’s marketing purposes.
The items are almost 11,000 years old and were first discovered in the 1940s at a Mesolithic Settlement called Star Carr in a location just outside of Scarborough. It is one of the most important Middle Stone Age sites to be discovered.
World renowned in fact, and it’s hard to believe that it’s right on our doorstep!
It was an amazing opportunity to see these items and digitally capture them for the museum. Flint tools, bones, beads and stag antlers were placed carefully on to a specially prepared background, painted by Angela Chalmers.
The images will used during a slide show and talk by Jennifer Dunn, on 6 November at 7.30pm.
