Hidden in the home: the concealed revealed roadshow
17 November, 2017, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Houses can yield mysterious finds. Shoes up chimneys; cats bricked up in walls; horse skulls under hearthstones. These objects have been deliberately concealed. But why? In collaboration with Sherborne Museum, who hold a fascinating collection of concealed objects, Dr Ceri Houlbrook of the University of Hertfordshire will be running an evening workshop where she will be exploring these objects’ histories, theories surrounding their concealments, and asking if other local residents have found anything similar in their homes.
