The exhibition focuses on the activities of antiquarian collectors, excavators and local residents who have all contributed towards making Bristol’s Roman collection what it is today. Many of the objects in the exhibition have never been on public display before.
The work of individuals such as the discovery of Kings Weston Roman Villa by post-war teenagers: George Boon and John Clevedon Brown.
The work of the Reverend John Skinner, whose excavations in Camerton, Somerset uncovered a wealth of Roman artefacts, including: three coin hoards; fine imported Roman pottery; brooches and other personal and domestic items.
Material from important local sites, including: the Roman town of Abona at Sea Mills; a Roman temple and three Roman villas - give visitors a flavour of the wide range of artefacts in the collection.
