Palace Green Library - Living on the Hills: 10,000 Years of Durham

About

This permanent exhibition uses objects from Museum of Archaeology, alongside objects from across Durham University and other regional museums to explore the last 10,000 years of Durham.

Living on the Hills explores the lives of people who have lived and visited Durham through the tools and everyday objects they used, and the art and architecture they left behind to be rediscovered. Discover Prehistoric objects found by chance at the turn of the century, Roman objects uncovered by Victorian antiquarians and Medieval objects found during 1970s archaeological excavations.

Community Archaeology

Included in the gallery is a community archaeology space which will showcase the work of local archaeology and history groups from across the region.
