Why Should I See It?
Of a wonderful selection of exhibits, one of the most spectacular is the Bewcastle Cauldron. The quality of the workmanship to make this item out of very thin metal is very good. Cauldrons were rare objects in the Iron Age and were probably owned by chiefs and associated with giving feasts. The importance of the chief was proportional to the quality of the feasts he gave.
A cauldron full of Celtic beer would go a long way to making it successful!
