At the British Museum

During his time on the International Training Programme in 2011, Falah was based in the Middle East Department and his partner placement was spent at National Museum of Wales.

In 2011 participants were asked to develop a proposal for a small temporary exhibition using an object from the British Museum’s collections. Falah’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Handling archaeological objects: from the field to the museum.

Falah’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by Linda Noe Laine.
