Archaeological depositions provide us with invaluable information relating to the rich and varied history of the district.

The Novium collects information, objects and assemblages from archaeological sites within the district - known as archaeological archives. The purpose-built Collections Discovery Centre at Fishbourne Roman Palace houses these archives and allows the public to see a working archaeology store in action.
