Museums at Night

Friday 19 May 2017

Starts at 9pm

The walk

Join a guided walk through the Museum site, stopping to visit some of our houses and discover how the people who dwelt there in the past would have lived during the hours of dusk and darkness. How did they light the dark? What did they do in the evenings? What did the darkness mean to them?
