LAURA WILSON : DEEPENING
Jan 18 - Mar 29, 2020
Artist Laura Wilson has created a new film work exploring the hidden landscape of Must Farm, near Peterborough. Located on the edge of a working quarry, this exceptionally well-preserved Bronze Age settlement is often referred to as the UK’s Pompeii. The site has been excavated by Cambridge Archaeological Unit, revealing many important discoveries about how people lived and worked.
 
Wilson’s work will be presented in Norwich Castle’s Boudica Gallery. The exhibition will include twelve Bronze Age vessels that have been excavated from the Must Farm site on loan from the Cambridge Archaeological Unit.

SPOTLIGHT : WORKS FROM THE MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART COLLECTION
Jan 25 - Dec 13, 2020

The exhibition reveals the breadth and variety of the Castle’s art collections, bringing together paintings, sculpture, photography and multi-media works.

WHERE LAND AND WATER MEET
Mar 16, 2020 - Jan 17, 2021
Norfolk’s extensive network of waterways have always been a characteristic feature of our region. Important for trade, transport and industry in the past, they are now a major tourist destination as well as a haven for wildlife. Norfolk’s waterways have also been the setting for sporting activities such as duck shooting and ‘water frolics’, or regattas which have taken place at Wroxham, Thorpe and Great Yarmouth since the early nineteenth century.
