TAS NEWSFLASH | New Exhibition : Street House Before Saxons opens 20 July

2014-07_Kirkleatham_SHBS800Dear TAS Members and Friends,

STREET HOUSE Before The Saxons

  • NEW EXHIBITION opens Sun 20 July at Kirkleatham Museum
  • EXCLUSIVE RECEPTION & PREVIEW for TAS Members and Street House Project Volunteers

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

An 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

Exclusive reception and preview

For TeesArchSoc Members* and Street House Project Volunteers
Sunday 20 July at 2pm Kirkleatham Museum TS10 5NW

Join project director Dr Stephen Sherlock and Museum staff for a reception with refreshments and nibbles in the Mayor’s Parlour before visiting the exhibition.

*Please bring your TAS membership card.

Kind Regards,

Spencer Carter | TAS Chair & eCommunications
