Come and see the 'African Warrior' figurine.
For many years an artefact discovered in the 1920s has been
on show in the museum. Research carried out during 2020/21
has highlighted new evidence concerning the figurine and is
the subject of an article in 'Current Archaeology (February
2022). The article prompted a letter published in the following

A group of volunteers, 'The Friends of Letocetum,' was formed in 2008, primarily to facilitate the re-opening of the Museum at Wall.
Wall (Letocetum) is quite unique in the fact that it is one of only a small number of sites in the UK which are under the guardianship of both National Trust and English Heritage. National Trust own the land on which the site (Mansio and Bath House) is located, and English Heritage is the custodian, providing upkeep of the ruins and surrounding land as well as the maintenance of the Museum.
The site is open all year round, but the group of English Heritage Volunteers, 'The Friends of Letocetum,' enable the Museum to be open at specific times during the year. These Museum Open Days are listed on our 'When We're Open' page.
