Thank you for following along with @wregionmuseum for our #52museums takeover! We had a great week sharing our stories with you.
Before we sign off, our staff and volunteers have one last message that they wanted to share with you....(turn up the volume and swipe to see it!)

You’d never guess that the historic village @wregionmuseum is located in the city. Doon Heritage Village was carefully recreated to be historically accurate, and a walk through the 60-acre site feels like a trip through time to 1914.

When working in our heritage village, staff interpreters showcase hands-on demonstrations of trades that existed in 1914. Products of these interpretations sometimes become available for purchase in the @wregionmuseum gift shop. Shown here are products made in our Blacksmith Shop and Harness Shop!

The #Middleborough #mosaic is displayed in #Colchester #Castle Museum. This #Roman mosaic was made around AD 175 and was uncovered during excavations in 1978.

Regarded as one of the finest Roman mosaics ever found, its intricate detail shows sea beasts and birds. It was a status symbol of its time and would originally have been a focal piece in a large Roman house.

@colchestermuseums has a small but beautiful collection of #manuscripts which were all donated by a man called Dr. Penrose in 1932.
Most of the manuscripts are Medieval and some have beautiful calligraphy and illumination (drawings). They are written in both #French and #Latin.

Christmas looked quite different for many on the home front in 1914, as shown by the front page of the Berlin News Record (Berlin Ontario, 🇨🇦) from December 24, 1914. - @wregionmuseum

The Heritage Singers at @wregionmuseum are a talented group of volunteers who perform in our 1860 United Brethren Church during special events- today they are singing carols for our Country Christmas event. We are fortunate to have hundreds of volunteers that help throughout the year, with everything from programs, restoration and artifact care, baking, and of course bringing our heritage village to life.

Today is @wregionmuseum ’s last major Christmas event of the season in our Doon Heritage Village. Country Christmas is a chance to enjoy a 1914-style Christmas in the Country. Visitors can experience the Christmas traditions in our heritage buildings, enjoy carol singing in the Freeport Church, take a horse-drawn wagon ride through the village, and of course- visit with Father Christmas!

#Colchester #Castle #Museum features finds from the #Lexden tumulus, one of the most famous #IronAge graves from Britain. It dates from around 15 BC and it is possible that it was the grave of a local ruler.

The grave included at least 17 imported wine vessels (amphorae) and a number of copper-alloy figurines. It is also one of the very few Iron Age graves to contain both #gold and #silver. The cremated remains of an adult male were found and it has been long recognised that this must have been the grave of someone of great importance. A barrow was built over the grave which remains visible to this day. The grave goods had been broken systematically, indicating funerary rites.
The grave contained a number of copper-alloy figurines including this magnificent boar and griffin.
