Archaeologist Tatiana Ivleva explores Roman glass bangles on both sides of Hadrian's Wall in this new display



Until 3 January 2018 (historic exhibition)


This new display focuses on Newcastle University archaeologist Tatiana Ivleva's research on Roman glass bangles in Britain.

Tatiana is particularly interested in the popularity of glass bangles in Northern Britain, on both sides of Hadrian's Wall.

A small number of fascinating artefacts are on show in the display which is taking place in our new temporary exhibition space, formerly the Mithraeum. 

We are aiming to show at least three different mini-exhibitions in this space each year.
