This was definitely one of the cutest museums I have ever seen.
And what would have been the fireplace
With loads of posters talking about the history of Amersham and filled with artefacts such as this ancient sewing machine. I was so remembering my grandma and Ma who used to operate these sewing machines like experts. Ma used to sew shirts for me and dresses for Guria. it was a magic machine and I used to observe it with deep devotion. Complicated stuff, eh?
Then there were a series of wooden plaques which showed the history of Amersham and what all they found here going back to the Stone and Bronze and Iron Age and then the Roman Occupation on the front plaque
Down to 2007 when the Burgermeister of Bernshiem popped over to Amersham to celebrate 30 years of twinning. So cute.
Some bottles found in Victorian Era rubbish dumps. Its fascinating to note that archaeologists prefer to go and search for ancient rubbish dumps rather than houses and palaces because its what we throw away is more valuable down the ages..
The beams are full of the wood worm holes..
And the floor is bricked, I head out..lovely little place, highly recommended to pop in and see. Manned by volunteers, they are a lovely knowledgeable bunch.
