Collection Bites

Join our guest speakers for lunchtime conversations featuring key objects from our collections.

Wed 3 July:

Ploughman’s Hunch – the Mystery of the Plough Pebbles Solved?

In the collection of the Manchester Museum are some pebbles. Quite ordinary pebbles that you might find in your garden. Except that these pebbles have strange wear patterns on them.

Join Curator of Archaeology Bryan Sitch for the story of what the pebbles mean and their link to one of the bitterest archaeological rows of the 20th century.

First Wednesday of the month, 1.05-2pm Please book on 0161 275 2648 or museum as spaces are very limited.
