From 2 to 8 August the Cut and Create Exhibition about the history of home dressmaking will be shut. The Hallaton helmet and coins – which were discovered in a field in southeast Leicestershire and are believed to be around 2,000 years old – will be removed for conservation.
The helmet was buried at a British shrine around the time of the Roman invasion which began in AD43.
It would have been worn by a Roman cavalry officer of high status.
The exhibitions will reopen on 9 August.
