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.

The Russell Chantry: Lothar Götz/Duncan Grant

13 February – 29 May 2016


In 1953 Duncan Grant was commissioned to decorate Lincoln Cathedral's Russell Chantrey with a set of murals depicting St Blaise, the patron saint of wool workers. The mural unveiled in 1959 remained private for a number of years, possibly because Duncan Grant chose to put a little too much of his own life onto the walls. It was reopened for public view after restoration in 1990.


The murals were painted at a time in British art history when mural painting was far more likely to occur on secular or municipal buildings and this is one reason why Grant's chapel murals are a rarity.


The Collection is inviting Lothar Götz to produce a new mural inside a 1:1 scale reproduction of this chapel. The exhibition will include a number of Duncan Grant's preparatory studies for his murals and examples of other artworks made in response to sacred spaces and spirituality from Lothar Götz, alongside highlights from the Methodist Art Collection.
