Archaeology Overview

We hold objects excavated from sites in and around Coventry, dating from the Bronze Age to the post-medieval period.

Tudor and Stuart

This small but significant collection is particularly rich in dress accessories.

Medieval

Coventry enjoyed a 'golden age' in the medieval period, which is reflected in our extensive collections.

Anglo Saxons

There are around 150 Anglo Saxon objects, most of which were excavated from a cemetery at Baginton.

Romans

The Roman material relates mainly to the Lunt fort, established around 60 AD.

Prehistory

The collection comprises around 300 objects ranging from the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic through to the Bronze and Iron Ages.
