For further discussion of the context and history, both ancient and modern, of some of our objects, see the online pages which cover the following topics:

The Gallery Guide

This booklet was available free of charge in the newly opened gallery until September 2010. It describes the work involved in setting up the new display, and focuses on some objects that were particular favourites of the gallery team.

You can download a pdf version of the Gallery Guide.
