I’m Heritage Manager for North Lincolnshire Museums, which includes North Lincolnshire Museum and Normanby Hall Country Park. The museums holds extensive collections covering the history of the area from geological origins to modern day. The Folklore collections include two important archives: the Rudkin and Peacock collections. There is also material related to local traditions such as the Haxey Hood and Plough Jags, and holdings of local archaeological material related to religion and ritual. All of the collections team have a keen interest in folklore and interpreting this material for our audiences. Recent temporary exhibitions have included the Coleby Plough Jags: A Living Tradition and Saints Sinners: Religion and Ritual in Medieval North Lincolnshire.
