08sep11:30 am3:00 pmHeritage Open Days: Meet the Archaeologist


Event Details

Bucks County Museum, 9 Church Street, HP20 2QP Tour 11.30am and 2pm only, Museum open 10am – 5pm Brett Thorn the Keeper of Archaeology, will be offering object handling sessions, to enable you to learn about and actually touch items from the county’s history. Ranging from Palaeolithic stone tools, created by the first humans in Britain, through a 3,000 year old bronze age sword, to Celtic gold coins, and Mediaeval jugs made not far from Aylesbury. Whilst seeing objects in a museum display, through glass, can be fascinating, the chance to actually hold something made 100s, or 1000s of years ago, and feel what those people felt, is a very powerful way of connecting to the past for some people, and a chance not to be missed. Maximum 15 people per session, which is approx. 45 minutes long. This event is aimed at adults, and there may be some discussion of mature themes. The museum is free to explore but the handling session must be pre-booked by contacting 01296 331441 or email
