Shine A Light

By Wayne Kett

Here in the superstores we have objects related to Norfolk that cover a huge period of time, but predominantly we house a social history collection related to Norwich. The objects we have help to tell the history of Norwich and its people, it is a history, lasting at least 1600 years. I wondered if I could condense 1600 years into a single blog? I tried and the answer is No! I will instead attempt to fit as much as possible into 2 blogs, so here is the history of Norwich part 1……

I am going to focus on 10 key events or periods that were crucial in shaping the city we know and love today. I will take the time to highlight objects from our stored collection in the superstore and across the museum service as a whole that relate to each period.

The Arrival of the Anglo-Saxons
