The ‘Stories and Shells’ exhibition is a nationally touring exhibition that will acknowledge our cultural connection to the Wampanoag people who met the Mayflower and ensured the survival of the English settlers.
It will include the commissioning of a new wampum belt, made exclusively by the Wampanoag people of the Mashpee and Aquinnah nations, to mark the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, which will tour alongside wider Mayflower content.
The creative process underpinning the exhibition will bring Wampanoag artists to the British Museum to record, interpret and explore one of the world’s largest collections of historic wampum belts.
The exhibition will tour to The Collection, Lincoln, Guildhall Art Galleries, London and Sea City, Southampton arriving in Plymouth in September 2020 - dates and locations to be announced soon.
You'll be the first to hear the latest Mayflower news, events, and more.
