The Ancient Heritage of Norwich

Friday, 01 March 2013

Last Wednesday, staff from Norfolk Historic Environment Service gave a talk for the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind at the Bradbury Centre.

This was the first in a series of talks on the Ancient Heritage of Norwich which will explore the archaeological records of the area from the prehistoric to the post medieval and provide the opportunity to handle artefacts from these time periods.

The first talk was on the prehistoric origins of Norwich from the palaeoloithic to the bronze age focussing on the sites of Carrow road (NHER 26602), the old Start-Rite shoe factory (NHER 40367), Unthank house (NHER 500) and Ber Street (NHER 45439).

Attendees also handled a range of flint and bronze tools, a mixture of artefacts and replicas, which were used by people in prehistory, and learnt how these tools were made.
