Romans & Saxons

Please note: Our Roman and Saxon collections are currently in storage - they will be redisplayed in our new archaeology galleries which will open Spring 2014

The Roman collections reflect the rural nature of south Wiltshire and include finds from villas and farms. From the Anglo-Saxon period there is a remarkable array of grave goods from cemeteries found locally. The Warminster Jewel, an Anglo-Saxon manuscript pointer, is one of the Museum’s greatest treasures.
