Street house before the Saxons

Street houses
Dr Sherlock returns to Kirkleatham Museum to unveil more artefacts linked to the highly successful Saxon Princess Exhibition, a stunning showcase of some of the finest Anglo Saxon finds from Northern England.

Archaeological excavations to the north of Loftus between 1979 and 2004 present a wealth of evidence of how people lived in East Cleveland over the last 5,000 years. The results of the excavations are presented in the exhibition Street House before the Saxons and opens its doors to visitors on Saturday 12th July 2014 at Kirkleatham Museum Redcar. The exhibition shows the varied range of sites, and the finds demonstrate how people were living in this part of North East Yorkshire thousands of years ago. The excavations have found a Neolithic cairn (3000 BC), Bronze Age burial sites, the remains of a timber house and two timber circles that date to around 2000 BC. During the Iron Age (300 BC), families were living in a settlement, growing crops and rearing animals. A Roman villa (AD 370) was found in the next field where people were making jet jewellery and pottery, and trading products around the area. This location became the setting for an Anglo-Saxon village, the home of a Saxon Princess.

This exhibition tells the story of the dig through photographs, two films, archaeological objects and offers the chance for children to find out about Roman life and dress up as a Roman!
Admission is free.

Climb up to the Moor exhibition September 11thJanuary Kirkleatham Museum
moors

A free touring exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum. This exhibition is a unique experience of moorland, with paintings by Judith Bromley & Robert Nicholls. The exhibition includes informative interpretations of the landscape and personal insights by the artists.

The paintings form the main core of the exhibition. The text panels describe the creation of the landscape, the diversity of the upland environment and the importance of its conservation, not least that our peat bogs are more efficient at capturing and storing carbon than the earth's rainforests.

Local artists, craftspeople and makers have been invited each to make a small piece, in their own medium and style, inspired by the moorland floor, to make a group installation: Ground Cover. Schools and other groups have also contributed their creations, adding to this innovative expanding artwork. As the exhibition travels from one venue to another Ground Cover has grown as other artists, makers, groups, children and families have added their own contributions.

The main collections of paintings are Judith Bromleys: oil on canvas stretched over block supports. The depth of the canvasses gives the portraits a presence, and as they are unframed the landscapes have the feel of being a slice of the vast endless space of the moor.

Tony Robinson Photography Exhibition 11thOctober 11thJanuary
Tony Robinson is a photographer who lives and is based in Redcar.
He has always been interested in photography but only became serious about it three year ago after being made redundant from a job spanning 32 years in Housing.

Due to his love of Landscapes Tony prefers to work outside using the natural light and elements to frame an image. He believes the background and lighting are the key element for a successful image.

Tony was awarded a Licentiateship with the Royal Photographic Society in 2013 and is keen to continue to develop his passion and constantly striving to improve, as he believes there is always room for improvement and always something to learn.

Having been photographer on a number of fashion shoots, had a number of images published in local newspapers and magazines as well as displays in local shops and The Hub Gallery Tony is now very excited to be displaying his Landscape work at Kirkleatham Museum.
