The Archaeology collections represent over 500,000 years of human activity in Warwickshire. From axes of the Early Stone Age to Tudor hair pins, the Museum collects and presents the stories of our ancestors through the evidence they have left behind.
This collection consists of domestic and working life objects featuring items used in the homes and workplaces of Warwickshire people from the 18th century to the present day.
Heritage and Culture Warwickshire’s geology collection comprises approximately 16 000 rock, mineral and fossil specimens of local, regional, national and international provenance. The main strengths of the collections lie in Warwickshire specimens, notably Triassic vertebrate fossils and Lower Jurassic fossils in general.
The collection is founded upon a historic collection of plant specimens, taxidermy, insects and shells, inherited from the 19th century collecting activities of the Warwickshire Natural History and Archaeological Society.
The Historic Environment Record (HER) is a record of all the historic and archaeological sites and finds within the county. Accessed through a computer and map based system, the record incorporates a wide range of sources, including aerial photographs, published and unpublished material, and historic and modern maps.
Our mission is to excite and engage people of all ages and ability to discover and preserve our Community Heritage by bringing it to life creatively for the present and future generations.
