Digital Archaeological Reconstructions

The new Elaine Evans Archaeology Gallery in Brighton Museum & Art Gallery opens in January 2019.

As part of the research for the gallery, Grant Cox of ArtasMedia created several 2D digital stills reconstructions of the key archaeological sites in the Brighton area.

Whitehawk Causewayed Enclosure

Whitehawk Causewayed Enclosure was built 5,600 years ago, 1,000 years before Stonehenge. It is the same size as eight football pitches.

In 1856, workmen cut into a huge burial mound near Palmeira Square, Hove. Scientists dated the oak coffin found there, it is about 3,500 years old. They also found the Amber cup, the only known complete amber cup like it in the world.
