Culture

In many parts of the world, past and present, people understand the landscape to be inhabited by non-human beings who live alongside people in one way or another. These can be ancestral powers of great importance, or small and mischievous creatures of various kinds. Lissant Bolton, Keeper of Africa, Oceania and the Americas at the British Museum, discusses some of these understandings.
