Kingston Ancient

Kingston Ancient | Jack Honeysett | 2010

 

This film brings together two institutions involved in engagement with and the representation of history, one is a National Trust property, the other is an experimental archaeology centre. The lens through which we understand history is entirely dictated by our context and the narratives we place on its retelling. How can we get closer to understanding the past, and what is the role of nostalgia, in understanding history through a romanticized view?
