The museum itself is quite good with some very interesting displays. However I must agree with "Prisonerfan" about the Roman exhibition as being poor value. Quite apart from the lack of information boards, those that are there contain many mistakes. Every board that speaks of legionnaires is in fact talking about members of the French Foreign Legion. Roman soldiers were legionaries. Another board is headed Mosasics whereas it should be Mosaics. Basic proof reading errors which have no place in a so called educational exhibition. This was compounded by the talk given last Monday by a so called expert from Otago University about Roman Lighting. A more halting, poorly researched, disastrously presented, mumbled display of poor public speaking I have not seen before. He actually had the audacity to say that Britain was poorly lit during the Roman Occupation and that once the Romans had left at the end of the 4th century, the lights went out!! He was confused by questions from the floor for which he was obviously completely unprepared. A disgrace in my opinion and an embarrassment to any professional organisation. Not worth the gold coin donation if they had not served cake and coffee afterwards.
