Archaeology Drop in Session at the Museum of Somerset

At yesterday’s drop in session at the Museum of Somerset, a family took a closer look at some finds from the Hinkley Point archaeological excavations.  These included a range of Roman pottery types, jewellery and coins.  The boys really liked the replica of the flint dagger, as shown in the photograph below!  The original flint dagger which dates back to the Bronze Age was found inside Wick Barrow, a prehistoric burial mound near Hinkley Point power station.  It can be seen on display in the archaeology gallery in the Museum of Somerset.
