This talk will explore artefacts in the Defaced! exhibition associated with the Mahdist War in Sudan (1881-99) that challenge conventional understandings of ‘loot’. These framed and mounted fragments reveal a British-imperial military culture that was bound by traditions that commemorated not only victory, but also death, mourning, and defeat.
This event will be taking place at the Museum and will also be livestreamed.
