In August 2006 the museum's display on the Epic of Gilgamesh was enhanced under the Illuminate programme of NESTA (National Endowment of Science, Technology and the Arts).
The NESTA funded project was entitled Move It, Touch It, Feel The Rhythm & Do It, this element was entitled "Touch It".
"Touch It" was created in summer 2006 by sculptor Neil Dalrymple, pupils from Adams School, Wem and storytellers from Mythstories museum.
The pupils looked at Neil’s work.
Then they listened to the story and sketched the ideas it inspired.
Neil Dalrymple took these sketches and created the work you can feel in the museum today.
