Discover the story of Dr Felix Oswald, the Nottinghamshire Probate Officer, geologist, archaeologist and Roman pottery specialist whose work led to the creation of the University of Nottingham Museum in 1933. This exhibition examines his life, his contribution to archaeology and the history of the university’s Museum. It also brings together previously unseen university collections from both the Museum and Manuscripts and Special Collections Department.
The exhibition is part of Archaeology and Collections in the East Midlands, an exhibition programme that introduces and examines some of the incredible work currently being undertaken throughout the East Midlands by archaeologists, community groups and museums. It also introduces unseen regional collections not usually on display.
