This is a full-day event to encourage participation in our project to improve coverage of Ice Age art aka the Art of the Upper Paleolithic on Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects, including the early history of the rediscovery and interpretation of these objects.  The British Museum are planning an important exhibition for Spring 2013 on this, and the project will run until then. 

This is a rare opportunity to have guided tours of the collections at Franks House, where the British Museum's Palaeolithic and Mesolithic objects not on display live.  It will also be possible to photograph some objects at Franks House, which will be very useful for the project (and at Bloomsbury in the normal way).  Places are strictly limited to 20 because of the facilities at Franks House.  We are very lucky to be having a generous amount of time with Jill Cook, Deputy Keeper of the Prehistoric & Europe Department, responsible for Palaeolithic and Mesolithic material, and [ Nick Ashton], Curator of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic collections.
