Making History: Church, State and Conflict
Explore up-close a unique collection of artefacts that tell the complex, and often violent, story of Church-State relations.
Amazing objects on display include the battle shield of Edward The Black Prince, a charter of King Henry II issued five years after the murder of Thomas Becket, and an 11th-Century document with the wax seal of William the Conqueror.
Stories Set in Stone
Including exhibits from the 9th Century to the present day, this exhibit tells the story of how stone is carved and explores how techniques and styles of working in stone have changed over the centuries.
