Frome Museum has a collection of local geology and archaeology objects & artefacts. The museum also holds an important collection of ice-age (Pleistocene) bones from a cave located on the edge of Frome at Stoke St Michael, Somerset which is not currently on display but which can be seen by appointnent .
What is happening with geology & archaeology?
- Frome Museum volunteers are sorting through the geology & archaeology collections at the museum to ensure they are stored safely in a good environment, are curated and made available for study and for promotion to the public.
- Frome Museum volunteers are also developing a ‘handling’ collection – these are fossils and rocks that will be loaned to schools to allow children to touch and hold them.
