archeological find Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet in Penrith

Posted in Uncategorized by gvd on April 26, 2017
Dear Jef,

I hope you are very well, and thank you for your email regarding the Crosby Garrett Roman Helmet.

After its discovery the helmet was auctioned off at Christie’s auction house in London. Carlisle’s Tullie House Museum did hope to buy it, however it was sold for £2.2m to an anonymous bidder. (I think you were kept up to date at the time about this.) Since them, I am afraid that the buyer’s identity has remained private, however the Helmet remains in the UK.

The good news is that the Helmet is making its way back to Cumbria for the Hadrian’s Cavalry Exhibition which starts this month. It will be on display at Carlisle’s Tullie House Museum, and I have copied in the link for the online leaflet for more information:

Please get in touch if you are ever in London and would like to meet up,

With best wishes,

Rory

Een paar jaar geleden kreeg ik bezoek van een prof van de universiteit en drie studentes die het volgend jaar zouden afstuderen. Ze kwamen kennis maken en waren blijkbaar op zoek naar een “onderwerp” om hun eindwerk te maken. Ik stelde het volgende voor: “Neem 10 artiesten in België, ge kiest ze zelf, artiesten die op dit ogenblik nog aan het werken zijn. Zij die volgens u de meningen van de bevolking nu maken! Ga er van uit dat zonder die personen de rest van het Culturele Leven : ministers, kabinetsmedewerkers, galeries, musea, kranten en bijlagen, academies, avondscholen, amateurverenigingen enz… er niet zouden zijn als die 10 geen voortrekkers en/of onderwerpen waren- dus zonder hen geen Cultuurtrein!” De prof en haar studentes zijn vertrokken , de drie zijn afgestudeerd en in de massa verdwenen waar ik hierboven naar verwijs en vouwden zich naar de regels van hun werkgever. De prof liet toen al weten dat ze de keuze van de studenten niet mocht” forceren” en zelf een onderwerp aanreiken. Was het de verkeerde richting die ik op bezoek had? Politiek Aspect van Emoties? Vraag aan de directeur van MU.ZEE waar dat over ging.

A few years ago I was visited by a professor and three students that would graduate the next year. Apparently they were looking for a ‘subject’ for their thesis. I proposed the following: “Research ten Belgian artists of your choosing that are still at work and shape the opinions of the people. Take for granted that without those persons Cultural Life would not exist: no ministers, cabinets, galleries, museums, newspapers, academies, evening classes, amateur clubs… There would be no Culture Train without those ten artists.” The professor and her students left, they graduated and disappeared in the crowd that I described and bowed to the rules of their employer.  The professor already told me she “she couldn’t force” the choice of her students and could’t impose the subject. Did the wrong study group  visit me? Political Aspect of Emotion? Ask the director of MU.ZEE what that was about.
