People that time forgot

Extraordinary - A People Called Ainu, Perth Museum and Art Gallery, all summer This exhibition for the whole family tells the fascinating story of the Ainu, the indigenous people of Northern Japan who survived against all odds and displayed extraordinary ingenuity. Long misunderstood and labelled as "hairy uncivilised savages", they were quite the opposite. Listen to their traditional music, watch a film of the Ainu today, examine artefacts from their daily lives and dress up in replica Ainu garments. For further information, tel: 01738 632488.
