From farmyard to Roman Museum

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on March 12, 2010 at 3:33 pm

There’s a new museum telling the story of the Romans in northern Britain in the planning in Cumbria .

It’s at Maryport, at the idyllic end of Hadrian’s Wall – the famous Roman frontier zone in the north of England. Overlooking the sea there is a spot called Camp Farm which, until recently, has been in private hands. But thanks to the clever folks at Hadrians’ Wall Heritage Limited – an independent organisation which seeks to cultivate contacts and collaboration along the wall – 150 acres of land have been purchased and are to be turned into a new museum.

The project has support to take it through to a formal HLF funding bid, which is sure to succeed. Details of the plans and the project are in a new article by yours truly on Museum [Insider].

I’ve had a bit of a break from writing articles for M[I], whilst I’ve been working on other projects, but we’re back on form now. Expect more to come out soon.
