Chichester District Museum has opened a new exhibition of recent archaeology from the area. The display illustrates the scope of modern archaeology, ranging from research work and developer funded archaeology to chance finds and metal detecting.

A striking feature in the display is a 13th century roof finial which once decorated the roof of an imposing house in the medieval city. It was excavated by Wessex Archaeology in 2003 from the site of the Pallant House Gallery extension.

There are activities for children throughout the exhibition, including a sandpit dig and a collection of mystery objects. The exhibition runs until July 15th.
