Very little is known about the life of the man whose ancient remains were discovered in a peat bog at Lindow Moss, Cheshire, in 1984. Avoiding speculative narrative, this exhibition presents first-hand accounts from seven people whose lives connect with Lindow Man's discovery.
Designed to evoke an archaeological trench or the stacks of a library, images, texts, sound, books and objects are
embedded in the construction's layered strata. The trench structure dissects the space with strong parallel lines creating a horizontal dynamic. Utilitarian materials in their raw state suggest the bleak landscape and natural colours of the Moss.
Lindow Man was awarded Best Temporary Exhibition Design, 2009, Design Week and Best Archaeological Innovation, 2010, British Archaeological Awards.
