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.

Look Out For

Freedom Lies

A series of three exhibitions that provide a contemporary discussion around themes raised by Magna Carta.

These exhibitions allow us to consider the global issues which are critical to today's ideas of freedom and liberty, such as capital punishment, freedom of speech, boundary laws and the power dynamics between “developed” and “developing” countries. Through provocative examples of contemporary art, historic documents and a new global commission from Ghana ThinkTank we would like to invite you to join in the discussion – What are today's problems with freedom? What does freedom mean to you?

Artists included in Freedom Lies: Jordan Baseman, 24th October 2015 – 24th January 2016; S Mark Gubb, 24th October 2015-14th February 2016; Ghana ThinkTank, 24th October 2015-14th February 2016; Michael Pinchbeck, 27th October 2015. Further highlights curated as part of Frequency Festival 2015.

Open daily- 10am to 4pm, last entry 3.45pm - FREE ENTRY
