New Friends of Corinium Museum Corporate Membership

The Friends of the Corinium Museum has started a new loan scheme that allows businesses to showcase historic artefacts in their place of work.

The first company to take up the scheme is Havas EHS in Cirencester, a digital and data agency whose main office is built on top of the Bath Gate Roman cemetery site.

The Havas EHS display shows a variety of grave goods originating from the Bath Gate Cemetery and a cooking pot that was discovered within the coffin that is currently in Havas EHS’ forecourt and contained the remains of a chicken carcass.

Pip Pembroke, New Business Manager at Havas EHS, added: “We’re delighted to be able to take part in this scheme and have enjoyed working with the Museum. Our visitors and staff often ask questions about our coffin, and now we have a wonderful display that complements our location and will please the Roman ghosts that are rumoured to wander round our premises.”

The Bath Gate Cemetery excavations, which were completed in 1974, uncovered over 450 Romano-British burials as well as a variety of objects associated with the burials.

If you would like to become a Corporate Friend of the Corinium Museum please contact the museum on 01285 655611 or click here for an application form.
