East Neuk Unearthed
East Neuk Unearthed

To celebrate the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology we travel through time to discover the history that lies hidden all around us and in the earth beneath our feet. Using objects from our own collections, plus local finds borrowed from National Museums Scotland and other collections in Fife, the exhibition will provide lots of opportunities for visitors to get hands on with history.

This exhibition brings together, for the first time, a range of objects found on or near the museum site, once itself an important hub within the town, to illustrate the themes of Food and Drink, Customs and Beliefs, Trades and Occupations, and Frontiers, that shaped the lives of those who were here before us. These unique travellers from the past will be our guides through the fascinating history of this place.

6 May - 30 July

The exciting events programme will involve Pewter Casting Workshops, Medieval Re-enactment Days and “be an archaeologist” sessions, with plenty of opportunities for people to get involved in uncovering local history. The exhibition will also evolve through the summer and we are very excited to be working with ImmersiveMinds who will be revealing Anstruther and the museum site in Minecraft, with opportunities to get involved with the build in some very special events on site. medieval food
