Explorers and Collectors
A fascinating and unique collection of collections brought back from travels across Asia, Africa, India and South America by some of Kent’s great explorers.
Some of their treasures made it back to Canterbury and are housed in this stunning gallery befitting their significance. Also on display are remarkable finds from excavations of Ancient Egypt and Anglo-Saxon Kent, alongside rare Ancient Greek art and souvenirs of The Buffs (East Kent Regiment).
