 Throughout the year, the house team will be undertaking preventative conservation. You will have the chance to see conservation first hand when you visit. However, this may mean some rooms may be closed and objects may be covered whilst we work.  So why not talk to the conservators as they work to find out more about our house and its conservation programme?

Have you seen The Vyne Roman ring?

Young visitor inspects The Vyne Ring

 One of the most exciting objects in our collection has its very own exhibition inside the house.This ring was found at Silchester, only a few miles away in a farmer's field. It has been linked with a piece of lead, inscribed with a curse. Who knows if it may have inspired Tolkien's books? To find out more click here.
