DESCRIPTION

The Corinium Museum is located at the heart of Cirencester, the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’. Its principal collection consists of the highly significant finds from the Roman town of Corinium Dobunnorum. However, the museum today is much more than that, taking the visitor on a journey through time and charting the development of the Cotswolds from its prehistoric landscape to the modern day.

This illustrated guide allows the visitor to explore highlights of the Corinium’s fascinating and diverse collection. These include important Neolithic finds from burials at Hazleton; some of the earliest and most accomplished Roman mosaic pavements found in Britain; significant finds from the Anglo-Saxon burial site at Lechlade; and a wealth of treasures from the medieval period onward.
