  • The Archaeological Story according to BLACCXN

    An experiment in museum interpretation, AHRC Creative Fellow, Alana Jelinek, has written a new version of the archaeological story to sit alongside the texts already present on the ground floor of the museum. This new interpretation is written from the point of view of her corporate persona, a Public Relations guru for BLACCXN. BLACCXN itself is a fictional transnational corporation, larger and perhaps more rapacious than any that currently exist.

    Archaeology becomes hijacked by corporate interests and interpreted through a few grave misunderstandings of Darwinian evolutionary theory.
