Go Behind the Scenes

  • 13th November 2015

Would you like to go behind the scenes here in The Hive? Would you see some the archive ‘treasures’ and handle real archaeological objects. As part of Explore Your Archive we are offering another of our popular tours which take you past the ‘staff only’ doors.

  • Archive Strongroom – come and see where we store our archives, and have a look at some of the highlights from our collections, including the Clothier Charter from Elizabeth I, a letter from the Titanic, the beautiful 18thC Vernon map book and medieval royal seals.
  • Conservation Studio – see what our conservator does to care for the books and documents which need some extra care.
  • Archaeology – enter our finds room and handle some artefacts found in county  from the past 2,000 years.
  • The tours are 2:00-3:30pm on Wednesday 18th November and cost £5. You can book your place at
