Exploring the Monmouth Rebellion


Over the past few months we have been delighted to welcome our first student placement as part of the Search & Learn project, Aubrey Banks.

Aubrey is completing a Masters degree in Heritage Management at Bath Spa University, and has been assisting our Curator by collecting information around artefacts within the Museum collection associated with the Monmouth Rebellion and its commemoration over the years.

We invited Aubrey to 'guest curate' the Curator's Choice case (which can be found adjacent to the Exhibition Room), and she selected a delftware charger from 1696 decorated with the likeness of James Scott the Duke of Monmouth. Do go and take a look when you are next in the museum!
