Discover evidence of 2000 years of life in Durham.

In 2016 and 2017, archaeologists moved into numbers 18-29 Claypath, to carry out investigation work on the site of the old cinema, snooker hall and garage in Durham city centre. This exhibition presents the results of these excavations. Visitors can discover evidence of 2000 years of life in Durham, from an Iron Age cremation to the remains of industry, medieval rubbish pits and 18th century street-front buildings.
