New glossy guide book for Cotswold Corinium Museum

Share this article

A glossy guide to all the Corinium Museum’s artefacts through time is now available this month with the launch of its new guide book.

The Guide - Corinium MuseumThe new book, called ‘The Guide’, has been officially launched at the Park Street venue and features the Museum’s vast collection of objects across 37 full colour pages, covering almost 2,000 years of history.

Sections include life in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as Cirencester’s important ties with the Romans.  There are also chapters on the Anglo-Saxons, the Medieval period, the Tudors, the Civil War and the Industrial era of the 18th and 19th Centuries. The paperback book is the brainchild of Museum staff after the £5 million refurbishment of the Park Street venue in 2004.  It features around 100 colour photos and measures 210mmx210mm.

The Corinium Museum’s Collections Management Officer Judy Mills said:  “Putting this guide together has been a very worthwhile exercise, as it serves as a guide to everything we have in the museum and can also be kept as a souvenir of your visit.  “You could take it home with you and flick through it at your leisure, and it will remind you of all the objects and artefacts that we have on display at the Museum.”  The guide has its own ISBN number identifying it as a book and is on sale in theCoriniumMuseum’s shop and the Visitor Information Centre for £4.95.  It is also available on mail order.
