I also visited this exhibition last weekend. It is a beautifully presented exhibition, with some truly interesting treasures, not usually on view to the public. It is also special because it is presented in an art gallery rather than a museum and the team at the Guildhall Art Gallery have overcome all manner of technical difficulties to present these fabulous artefacts. It is a small portion of what was offered, but well worth a visit. Entrance: £5.00 (+ concessions)
Look out for the Barber Surgeons fold out book of the body - the first of its kind, I believe.

While you are at the Art Gallery please make the time to visit the Roman Amphitheatre which lies beneath.
I will be off to the Goldsmiths' Hall (details below) again this Saturday, with note book in hand, to do more research.
