Bishop’s Stortford Museum
ARCHAEOLOGY AT WHITTINGTON WAY
We are currently hosting a display provided by our good friends at Oxford Archaeology East on the first floor of the museum. The display gives an overview of the work that they carried out at Whittington Way in the latter part of 2019. Excavations like this are really transforming our understanding of the early development of Bishop’s Stortford and we are delighted that we are the first local venue to host the display. We have created a small virtual version of the display below so that you can keep yourself up to date with this latest development even if you are unable to visit in person. There is a video that accompanies the display that you can view on the Oxford Archaeology East YouTube channel by clicking here.
The Museum in Your Own Home!
Although we are now open again some of you may still prefer to visit us from the safety of your own home (or phone) using our virtual tour of teh 2nd floor museum display. When you are in the tour you can “grab” the background with a left click of your mouse and pull the background to the left, right, up or down to look around. As you do this you will see icons embedded in the image. “Arrow” icons are to help you move from one area to the next, “i” icons display information when you hover your cursor over it. You can toggle between regular and full screen with the square icon at the top left corner of the tour.
