Artefacts Alive!


Beneath houses and pavements, fields and country roads lie buried clues to our past —, objects lost or discarded by countless generations. Each has secrets to reveal...
We see these objects on display in museums or illustrated in books but a lot has happened to them since they re-emerged from the soil.
Share with us the thrill of discovery. Take a glimpse behind the scenes to see how artefacts can come alive.
