Roman coins on show as part of three exhibitions

HASTINGS Museum and Art Gallery has three new exhibitions on show.

In the Long Gallery until January 2015, The Four Seasons is a new selection from the museum’s permanent collection to celebrate the wonder of the four seasons.

On the First Floor Walkway from today (Friday) to March 8, is No Labels, which is a selection of photographs by John Stiles. This exhibition illustrates the character, strengths and individuality of the people involved with the Seaview Project, a local charity working with those who feel they are living on the edge of society.

On the Lower Walkway until March 31, features the Wealden Coin Hoard. This rare coin hoard was hidden for 1,700 years until found in 2006 by a metal detectorist on the edge of the Weald in East Sussex. One of the largest hoards ever found in the county, the 2,895 silver coins date from the 3rd century AD.

The coins were conserved and catalogued by staff at the British Museum, and were acquired by the Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton under the Treasure Act, with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
