This project began life as two, vast, empty floors. The inner spaces within the castle, split over two floors, feature new displays throughout the multiple galleries showcasing archaeological collections housed in bespoke, conserved display cases. These are complemented with visitor interactive displays and audio visual content, for an immersive dive into British history.
