Archaeological archives

The bones and artefacts we have found at Chester Farm and the stories these items tell are amazing. Unfortunately, there is currently nowhere suitable for these items to be displayed for you to see.

We want to change that.

Our vision is to create a single Archaeological Resource Centre (ARC) at Chester Farm, where you can come to learn about Northamptonshire's history.

The material to be safely stored in the ARC has been accumulated over fifty years of excavation. You will also be able to see any new archives created from future excavations.

What can you expect to see?
