The new gallery gives us a fantastic chance to think about the stories of the people of the Peak District, from early people to the modern day.
When archaeological digs are carried out, after all the analysis has taken place, any human remains and associated objects and records are often homed in the local museum where possible. They are a physical link to the folk who left their mark in the landscape. Some had their homes here, some were just passing through. Their structures, tools and artefacts can show us their skill, technology and humanity.
So we would love to know …
- What fascinates you about earlier people in this area?
- What sort of things would you like to know about them? and …
- What do you feel about human remains in the gallery?
