    The Green Room is a project that was created by MA students from UCL’s Institute of Archaeology in collaboration with the staff at the Geffrye Museum in London, to celebrate and document the story of the museum’s historic buildings and gardens during a period of major development.

    This audio soundcape features Christine Lalumia, Deputy Director of the Geffrye Museum, the UCL students involved in the project and some of the visitor responses to the exhibition.

    The centrepiece of the project was a special exhibition in the gardens exploring how the space has been used over time, integrating local history with global influences (particularly in terms of plants), and setting it in a wider social and cultural context.

    UCL is consistently ranked as one of the world's top universities. Across all disciplines our faculties are known for their research-intensive approaches, academic excellence and engagement with global challenges. This is the basis of our world-renowned degree programmes. Visit us at www.ucl.ac.uk.

      This is indeed important to work on.

      I believe that integration of local history with global influences is really important!
