The Americas in a new age of discovery

12:00 am - 12:00 am

Jago Cooper, Head of the Americas at the British Museum, reveals some of his latest discoveries made during fieldwork on Isla de Mona in the Caribbean.

Exploring a series of cave systems on this currently uninhabited island, Jago has revealed exciting evidence of previous human occupation and new insights into the first encounters between Europeans and the indigenous Taino population.

In this lecture, Jago will reflect upon the role that ‘discovery’ has played in the history of the Museum, and what role it should look to play in its future. Includes a complimentary drink.
