What’s On Calendar
The archaeological collections date from earliest prehistoric times to the more recent past, covering a period of 250,000 years. A total of approximately 2.75 million items are in the care of the Archaeology Department. These collections have been built up since 1825 containing a wide range of mainly East Anglian material recovered from excavation, survey and chance finds, comprising a prominent regional collection.
The collections, and associated information about the sites they come from, provide the basis of our understanding of the origins of human settlement and the social, cultural and economic development of life in Norfolk, and Britain, over thousands of years.
