Heritage Ability's BSL video sensation Paul Valentine has now brought the collections at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter to life. The museum is the fifth Devon location to now offer British Sign Language videos to enable Deaf people to understand our heritage. Viewed together, the videos take visitors back through history to Roman Exeter. They explore the origins of the earth and the wildlife that inhabit it. The videos complement RAMM’s existing videos which focus on key objects in the display and introduce the museum: how to find it and the facilities available.
Paul Valentine said: “RAMM is a great place to visit, however there is so much to learn that it can be quite overwhelming for someone who is Deaf, as English is not my first language. It’s been great to work with Heritage Ability to create videos that will make it easier for other Deaf users to understand the information here. I’m now working with the team to look at creating a first ever Deaf led face-to-face tour!”
