If Stones Could Speak - The Archaeological Landscape of Tyrone is a new exhibition, in partnership with Derry City & Strabane District Council Museum Service, Historic Environment Division & Strabane History Society. It was created from the aspirations and need of the local community and local museum service to display the rich archaeological heritage of the area.
Ancient monuments such as court tombs, standing stones accompanied by funerary bowls and flint dot the landscape of this area. Key items on display are an ancient Log Boat from Clady as well as the collections of archaeological material on loan from the Historic Environment Division.
This exhibition based at the Alley Theatre, Strabane is accompanied with a programme of talks to be delivered by renown experts in their field. It will serve as more permanent home for the collections that highlight the rich heritage of the area. It is also intended that there will be a rotational display once a year based on the many historical themes relating to the heritage of Strabane. This will be aimed at the local audience, and the changing display will give visitors a reason to return to the exhibition and local community involvement will also instil a sense of local pride in their heritage.
