Susan Neumeyin, U.S.A.
Curators note: every effort has been made to accurately interpret the past in the Riches of Clare exhibition using available archaeological finds from this county. It is difficult attribute specific artefacts to women or men before recorded history without resorting to many modern gender stereotypes that may not have applied in ancient societies. It is therefore difficult to measure the extent to which the exhibition is male or female oriented.

Just a note to say that our classes thoroughly enjoyed and really benefitted from their visit to the County Museum. It will be an annual trip. The guides were very good in dealing with the children's questions. They were also willing to listen, which is not something common to a lot of guides ... it is wonderful to have such a facility on our doorstep.
