Join Paula, the Curator of Archaeology, to explore the Prehistory Galleries at the Hull and East Riding Museum. The focus for this informal gallery talk will be the work of the pioneering Victorian archaeologist, J.R. Mortimer, and his 40 years excavating burial mounds on the Yorkshire Wolds. We’ll look at the innovative ways he formed his collection and the role his daughter, Agnes, played in creating a lasting legacy.
Enter a world where 235 million years of history is brought to life. From majestic mammoths to Saxon invaders, visitors to the Hull and East Riding museum of archaeology can look forward to an experience that is unique, educational and fun. Walk through an Iron Age village, enter a Roman bath house and look at the stunning mosaics. Discover a mysterious crew of wooden warriors and see our medieval treasures!
