Enjoy our new special exhibition exploring the rich prehistoric and Roman archaeology of Durham
Picturing the Romans invites you to explore the daily life of Romans through images found on Samian Ware, a type of decorated Roman pottery.
You will discover how this pottery was produced and the way people lived thousands of years ago through objects they left behind.
10,000 years of Durham - enjoyable visit
Really enjoyed my visit here. The small but well thought out exhibition displays a good balance of artefacts for each relevant period.”
A very interesting exhibition
