• One must be a fox in order to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten off wolves. Machiavelli Niccolo

Visit Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle



In order to record and interpret the lives and activities of the people who have lived in northern Cumbria over the last 10,000 years, Tullie House collects a wide range of material. This includes objects, ephemera (printed material), photographs and associated information files.

All of these collections share a common theme, but for practical organisational reasons the convention has long been to separate all formally excavated material and everything dating to before the Tudor period The Archaeology Collection from eveything later The Local History Collection.
