Highlights to see in the Archaeology Gallery at The Collection

In the archaeology gallery at The Collection: Art and Archaeology in Lincolnshire visitors can enjoy a wealth of artefacts spanning over 300,000 years of human history from prehistory through to the medieval period. 

These artefacts tell the story of Lincolnshire, and help us to learn about the people who have lived where we live now. The artefacts selected below are highlights from the collections and take the visitor through almost half a million years of life in Lincolnshire including the Stone Age, Iron Age, Roman, Saxon, Viking and Medieval periods.

An incredibly intricate and thoughtful exhibition inspired by Agatha Christie

18 June - 11 September 2016

Exhibition Opening Times: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Venue: The Collection

Price: Free Entry


An exhibition of fine paintings with a theme inspired by Agatha Christie and detective fiction, where each painting has a title and a caption suggesting a possible role that might be played by the subject in a larger mystery. Artists include Duncan Grant, Gwen John and other greats from British Modernism.


Frances Fyfield is an award winning crime writer who has written twenty four suspense novels and, in the meantime, collected rather more pictures. This exhibition showcases just part of her eclectic private collection of paintings, amassed over fifty years. Each painting on display tells a story and each character featured has a role in our very own murder mystery. On the walls you will see the victim, charlatans, thieves, murderers, onlookers, bit players, detectives. It is up to you to decide how guilty or how innocent each one might be.
