The Heritage Museum
Have you ever seen a mammoth tooth? A Roman Mosaic floor or a Stone Age polished axe head?
The Heritage Museum has been created to display the many artefacts that were found on the site during the extensive archaeological excavations in the 1980s. You will find displays that tell the story of the past settlers who have lived here over the last 10,000 years.
With amazing views over Solstice Lake, the Heritage Zone is also the perfect place to look out over our Bronze Age Round Barrow, an ancient scheduled monument. Volunteers, rangers and specialist contractors have been working hard to protect and restore the area, making the Round Barrow a feature in the landscape once again.
A replica Bronze Age log boat is also on display, kindly loaned by Dr James Dilley of Ancient Craft who we are partnering with for our Bronze Age Boat Build project.
Amongst the many amazing artefacts displayed are information boards explaining all the exciting heritage projects that are underway to explore the rich history of the site.
