9 Nov-Feb 2011. This an exhibition dedicated to the pre-Columbian civilisation of Teotihuacan. The city of Teotihuacan was once home to up to 200,00 people and from 200- 700 AD was a powerful political, military, economic and cultural centre to which all of Mesoamerica looked for inspiration. Scholars are agreed that the city was destroyed by a devastating fire in the 7th century but are divided as to whether the blaze was started by invaders or insurgents. To this day, the downfall of the city and dispersal of its people is shrouded in mystery; however its remains the most visited of Mexico's 170 archaeological sites. Visitors to the exhibition can view 300 artefacts from this lost civilisation, including stone carvings and masks discovered in recent excavations. The highlight of the show is the display of fragments of murals which were painted 2,000 years ago.
