Are you looking for presents that are a little bit different this year?  If so, come to Explore the Past on Level 2 at The Hive, Worcester to see the large range of Books and CDs related to the history of Worcestershire– ideal gifts for young and old.  Brought to you by the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service, we also have a great selection of Jewellery, Gifts and Pottery, all inspired by the past.

New for 2014! For the first time this year we have a gift for the person who has everything.  You can now make a donation to Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service either as a gift to yourself or for someone else.   The minimum donation is £5, and in return you will receive a gift card to show what you are contributing to. There are three lovely cards to choose from, one of which has a Christmas theme:

                  

Don’t forget we also stock the newly published Stories of Worcester:  History through the Eyes of Children by Pat Hughes and Deborah Overton – a great read for any budding history lovers out there; and Worcestershire’s War by Maggie Andrews, Adrian Gregson & John Peters, which was researched using letters, diaries and journals made at the time. This remarkable collection of voices gives a unique insight into this county’s First World War.

Head along to The Hive today to grab a gift that will be treasured this Christmas!
