Curio’s Approach

Our approach was to ensure that this important archaeological site’s story was told through the display of found artefacts which tell stories of the daily lives of its inhabitants.

Curio worked closely with the project’s industrial designer on each object’s display vitrine, curating objects as well as expertly installing each found item.

Accessible day and night, lighting design was incorporated to highlight each object.

Interpretation included the design of a series of ground inlays featuring objects and their identifying numbers. Curio developed content, illustrations and design for didactic panels to provide visitors with an insight into what else was discovered under their feet. 

Legacy We Leave Behind
Beautifully curated showcase of a cross section of daily life during the mid to late 1800s which provides visitors and passerbys with an insight into what else was discovered under their feet.
