Hull and East Riding Museum houses one of the best collections and most imaginative displays in the north of England. Highlights are the mosaics from Rudston and Brantingham villas and finds from major excavations at Welton Wold villa and Shiptonthorpe Roman roadside settlement. Key artefacts include the inscription dedicating a new proscenium arch for a theatre at Brough on Humber and a large collection of Roman pottery, glass and items of personal adornment. Although the focus will be on the Roman galleries, the Prehistoric and Medieval galleries are certainly worth a look.
The tour will be led by Dr Peter Halkon.
