Romans to the Industrial Revolution

The Black Country has seen many changes in human occupation in the last 2000 years.

This gallery displays artefacts and replicas from AD43, and the arrival of Romans into Britain, through to the medieval times when the earliest rumblings of the Industrial Revolution began and swept across this landscape.

For Saxons and Vikings, look at the warrior burial and replica Viking helmets, such as the Sutton Hoo helmet, the Coppergate Helmet and the Wollaston Helmet.
