Holme timber circle finds home

LYNN Museum is closing to the public from today for several weeks while the Seahenge timbers from Holme are installed into the new Bronze Age gallery.
The gallery is the final part of the £1.2 million Lynn Museum redevelopment funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Norfolk County Council.

Half of the 4,000-year-old timber circle will be on display together with a reconstruction of how the circle might have looked when built.

The Bronze Age monument has been well-travelled since it was lifted from the shoreline at Holme in 1999.
