BBC Civilisations Festival at Creswell Crags


Friday 2nd March – Thursday 27th May 2018

Prehistory in Pop Culture

What is it, exactly, that makes us human?

Creswell Crags have brought together a range of images from the past 200 years which have been used to represent our Stone Age ancestors. These images crop up everywhere; in television, films, art, merchandise and social events. Some, like Fred Flintstone, are instantly nostalgic. Others may be unfamiliar. Some look just like us, while others are almost unrecognisable as humans.

We’re asking you to decide: what does this say about us?

How much have ideas of our own humanity impacted how we see the past? What is it that makes us different to Stone Age people? Are we more ‘civilised’, more ‘advanced’, or simply more egotistical?

This exhibition is part of the BBC’s Civilisations Festival, which asks you to question your own civilisation and cultural identity. Thanks go to the Art Fund for their contribution towards this exhibition.

FREE ENTRY objects, artwork and memorabilia.
