Exhibition: Street House Before the Saxons

Street House Before The Saxons
New Exhibition opens Sun 20 July at Kirkleatham Museum

This exhibition chronicles the archaeology of Redcar & Cleveland  through the excavations at Street House near Loftus between 1979 and  2013.

Whilst many people will have heard about the Royal Anglo-Saxon cemetery, excavated  between 2005 and 2007, there is much more to this area than the Saxon treasure. The exhibition is the prelude to the  award-winning Saxon Princess gallery and sets the scene for much of the
archaeology of East Cleveland. It will run for one year.

Highlights
incredible 5000 year journey:
Neolithic rock art, pottery, flint tools, axe and macehead
Bronze Age burial urn and Iron Age spear
Roman jet, beads, coin, pottery and carved phallic stone
Plus loaned objects from English Heritage and regional museums
