Objects from the Museum's permanent collection will be included in the exhibition to provide an added insight into the people behind extraordinary locations such as the Great Wall of China, Uluru, Babylon, Teotihuacan and the Uffington White Horse.

Georg Gerster wrote and illustrated the wonderful book 'Churches in Rock' (London, 1970) on the rock churches of Ethiopia. This exhibition includes some of his stunning aerial photographs of Ethiopia.
