NMMC’s Bronze Age focus

Date Posted: 18/02/2012

The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is presenting new exhibition, 2012BC: Cornwall and the Sea in the Bronze Age, from the 13th April. Running until the 30th September, this display will aim to unlock the county’s Bronze Age maritime heritage.

Visiting groups can witness a live reconstruction of a prehistoric boat, supported by rare historic artefacts reportedly never before seen in the UK. This ambitious and challenging project aims to recreate the oldest boat ever found in western Europe, dating back to around 2,000 BC, using replicas of ancient tools. Groups can discover Cornwall’s ancient links to the rest of the world, and explore the evidence for Bronze Age trade and exploration beyond our shores.

Group travel organisers planning a visit to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall can take advantage of discounted admission rates for parties of ten plus; a dedicated coach drop-off and pick-up; specialised group tours; and an optional Park & Float ferry ride to the museum.
