An evolutionary exploration in martial weaponry, defence, and practice
NEW to Moyse’s Hall … The ‘Conflict’ exhibition will explore warriors, nameless and otherwise, from antiquity to the 20th Century.

With incredible artefacts on loan from museums and private collections, this unique exhibition will focus on Roman artefacts from across Europe, the medieval Battle of Fornham (1173), as the biggest battle ever seen in West Suffolk, and post-medieval struggles and conflicts.

Some items will have a global significance pertinent to either their owners or victims. From the earliest English guns, to the two Fornham Swords displayed side-by-side for the first time, Trafalgar fleet issued musket, Roman daggers, one of the shotguns that killed Bonnie and Clyde, and even a Tommy Gun!
