Discover more about the unique collections of The Sussex Archaeological Society during this intimate informal evening with our Museums’ Officer Emma O’Connor.

This fascinating evening focuses on some highlights from the ceramics collection, from pre-history to the 19th Century.

Held in the library at Barbican House in Lewes, these exclusive behind-closed-doors sessions will offer the chance to learn more about some of the many thousands of objects which are held by the Society.

Expect plenty of opportunities for handling objects, examining them closely and interesting stories about the people behind the objects and how they ended up in the care of the Society.

Light refreshments will be provided for guests to enjoy after the talk.

Please note: the library is on the third floor of Barbican House with access via two flights of stairs so the event may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
