George Musgrave’s latest book

George Musgrave’s latest book What Happened to Anderida? In Search of Roman Eastbourne was published on the 16th June.

A scale model of what Eastbourne’s Roman villa may have looked like will be officially unveiled by its creator George Musgrave

The villa once stood approximately where the entrance to the pier  is now. The discovery of its foundations and other Roman finds in Eastbourne are detailed in George Musgrave’s latest book What Happened to Anderida? which is on sale exclusively in the Museum.
Amongst other prominent citizens of the town, the Councillor responsible for tourism, Susan Morris, and Emeritus Professor John Pick of the Royal Gala Project and the Eastbourne Cultural Strategy Group will be in attendance.

The book is commended not only to any who have an interest in the Roman period, but to anyone who likes a good read.

About Musgrave Museum in Eastbourne

George Musgrave created a private museum on a quiet shopping street in the southern English seaside town of Eastbourne. Among the charity shops, souvenir emporiums, newsagents and decaying hotels, the Musgrave Collection is an unusual and somewhat startling enterprise. Artist, designer, filmmaker, storyteller, collector, George Musgrave had, at ninety years of age, created a museum around his own life, interests and collections, constructing an idiosyncratic, self-curated, vision of a personal archive.
