The Past Underfoot Exhibition has been unveiled at Lowestoft Museum.
A recent dig at Bloodmoor Hill in Carlton Colville near Oulton Broad has unearthed several fascinating remains and uncovered an Anglo-Saxon settlement and cemetery. The finds include hair combs, whalebone chopping boards, glass beads and slip-knot rings, among many other fascinating objects, many of which are to go on display at the Lowestoft Museum exhibit for the very first time.
The Lowestoft Museum exhibit was made possible because of a £17,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. On last Saturday, the Mayor of Lowestoft, Roger Bellham, cut the exhibit’s opening ribbon in order to open it to the general public. All of the artefacts are made possible thanks to loan by the Suffolk Country Council’s museum service, and are sure to attract hundreds of new visitors to this already popular museum.
