Allen Seaby's

Archaeology for children

Tuesday-Friday from 9am

13 September 2019 - 21 February 2020

Allen Seaby was an artist, teacher and writer. A master of Japanese style wood-block technique, he is best remembered for his prints of the natural world, particularly birds, yet he was also interested in the ancient past. Through his books he brought this world to life for young people. Through unpublished artworks, on loan from the Gillmor family, and archives, including an unpublished manuscript in University of Reading’s Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, this exhibition documents Seaby's collaborations with Percy and Annie Ure, founders of the Ure Museum.
