Dusting off the Treasures…

County: North Yorkshire

Thu 28-Fri 29 July 11.00-17.00

Meet National Trust archaeologist Mark Newman as he cleans and records the latest haul of treasures – from jewellery and silks through humble pen nibs, to food remains dragged in by rats and mice – recovered from under the floors of Nunnington Hall.

Be amazed by how many different aspects of the Hall’s life are preserved through the objects either lost between worn floorboards of deliberately hidden/left behind, and how many different stories can be told from tiny objects.

No charge (normal National Trust admission fees to Nunnington Hall apply. Free to NT members).

Location: Nunnington Hall, Nunnington YO62 5UY.
