Attraction details
Owner description: The Museum of Archaeology's collections range from the prehistoric to the post-medieval. Our gallery showcasing the Museum's collections is open at Palace Green Library, located on the first floor. A permanent gallery uses objects from Museum of Archaeology, alongside objects from across Durham University and other regional museums to explore the last 10,000 years of Durham. Living on the Hills explores the lives of people who have lived and visited Durham through the tools and everyday objects they used, and the art and architecture they left behind to be rediscovered. Discover Prehistoric objects found by chance at the turn of the century, Roman objects uncovered by Victorian antiquarians and Medieval objects found during 1970s archaeological excavations. Entry to the gallery is free for everyone. The previous Old Fulling Mill Museum of Archaeology on the banks of the river Wear is now closed to the public.

On the banks of the River Wear, housed in what was the fulling mill, this museum is now part of a number of Durham University museums. It shows the origin of the City and is excellent for children.
