Abstract

An exhibition on the Iron Age settlement of Crustumerium was held in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2016. It was the result of a collaborative effort by several international scholars and professionals over several years. The article explains how the exhibition came about and discusses the aspects that were taken into consideration over the course of the organisation process, such as the exhibition’s narrative, the items to be displayed and the logistic demands. The exhibition was innovative in that it offered interactive contact between the public and the archaeologists and restorers at the museum, which allowed visitors to immerse themselves more deeply into the subject, broadening their understanding and experience.
