The upstairs

The two upstairs rooms were originally used as living and sleeping apartments.

One is displayed with archeology and ephemera relating to Thetford’s rich history, including objects dating from prehistory, the eras of the Celts, the Romans, the Vikings, through to the 1960s.

The second room dwells on the lives of four of the ‘Ancient Householders’ who once owned or lived in this building: an innkeeper, a plumber, a watchmaker and a museum caretaker.

You can also uncover the animal occupants of the house from the black rat and house mouse to bed bugs and body lice.
