Stories from the store: From antiquarians to archaeologists – the creation of a collection

This free online talk will explore some of the stories and people involved in the making of the city’s British Archaeology Collection.

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery holds large amounts of archaeological material amassed over a 200 year period which incorporates material dating from the earliest human activity to the present day.

Some of this material originates from the interests of early collectors but also from commercial archaeological investigations and community archaeology projects.

This is an opportunity to see and hear about some amazing finds as well as the personalities involved.

Speaker: Kate Iles, curator of archaeology and world cultures.
