The Highlights of the Stevens-Cox Archaeology Collection
The Stevens-Cox collection was kindly bequeathed to us in 1997 and constitutes a significant and vast archaeological archive on the history of South-Somerset. Ranging from Prehistoric through to Post Medieval, although concentrating on Roman and Medieval eras, it illustrates the history and development of Ilchester.
The archive is divided into two sections:
- The archaeology collection: containing examples of Roman and Medieval pottery, masonry, jewellery such as brooches, bone artefacts as well as an assortment of Roman tesserae
The numismatic collection
: containing a vast array of Roman coins, 18
century Somerset trade tokens and numerous coins from periods in-between.
Bronze Age Trackway
Roman Wall Plaster
Low Ham Mosaic
Saxon Linen Smoother
Saxon Pin Beater
