SIEGE AND STRIFE IN WALLINGFORD

Wallingford Museum has now opened its new exhibitions featuring 'Siege & Strife:Wallingford & War'. This exhibition presents the human story of the people of Wallingford and the effect of war upon them. It covers all conflicts from the founding of the Town to present day warfare.

Special exhibits include the rare Saxon arrowhead, found by James Spooner from the latest Test Pit in the town which has been x-rayed and conserved, and also some 12th century pottery from King Stephen’s Siege castle in Crowmarsh, recently found during excavations by archaeologists from the Museum of London on the old Wilder’s site. There are also Civil War cannon balls, World War I memorabilia - including a Christmas Card made from a corned beef tin - and cameras from the photo-reconnaissance unit at RAF Benson.

New, too, will be a first chance to see some of the finds recovered from the medieval cemetery of St Martin's (that lies beneath you as you shop in Waitrose).

Entry ia £4 for an adult season ticket and FREE for children.
