Dover Museum|

Dover Museum is much more than just a local history and archaeology museum. Situated in the town centre of Dover, Britain’s historic port town, this modern museum tells the story of this rich and important area.


Bronze Age Boat

Bronze Age Boat|

In September 1992, archaeologists discovered the remains of a large wooden prehistoric boat thought to be some 3,000.

It was a find of both national and international significance which shed new light on early seafaring and woodworking skills in Northern Europe.
