In 1956, King's College Cambridge student Neil Robinson visited Kosovo on a study trip. The photographs he took are glimpses of a Kosovo that has all but disappeared. Villagers in traditional costume, occupations such as limeburning, or city scenes with horse-drawn vehicles - all these are now almost forgotten in Kosovo.Neil's widow, Judith, heard about the Ethnological Museum in Pristina, through an interview with The Ideas Partnership's Elizabeth Gowing on BBC Radio 4. She offered to give Neil's photographs to the Ethnological Museum.The Ideas Partnership helped the Museum to host an exhibition of the photographs, opened by Judith herself, and the British Ambassador to Kosovo. After 55 years, the photographs of an almost forgotten Kosovo came home.
