The British Museum has undergone some extensive work over the last year or so. One of the latest additions are British Sign Language videos which were produced by students from Frank Barnes Primary School for Deaf children. They worked with Museum staff to give their own interpretations of African masks and headdresses, the Assyrian lion hunt reliefs and the Parthenon sculptures.
