Another 60 Second History for you. This time inspired by the panic buying caused by the current Covid-19 pandemic we look at how Britian coped with food shortages during the Second World War with the introduction of rationing.
The latest in our 60 Second Histories looks at the history of the iconic statue of King William III in the centre of Petersfield's town square.
We are excited to introduce you to our new 60 Second Histories! Our way to share more about the objects and stories from our collection while in these extraordinary times!
Our first 60 Second History explores the history of our iconic Penny Farthing!
We are very excited to announce the acquisition of a Bronze Age hoard to the Museum, currently on display in the People of the Heath: Bronze Age Barrows in Petersfield exhibition, which runs until 24th November 2018.
The Buriton Hoard consists of four attractive bronze ornaments: two torcs (worn around the neck) and two bracelets. The hoard was found by a metal-detectorist in 2016 in Buriton parish, not far from Petersfield Heath.
