Life Gallery

Discover the elements of the landscape used by people to survive in the Yorkshire Dales. These elements include water, stone, wood, metal and earth. Over the centuries, people have exploited and adapted these elements in their struggle to survive.

Archaeology displays include prehistoric animal bones evidence of human activity from the earliest Stone Age hunters through to 20th century industrial remains. You can see the crafts created from these materials in the Hartley and Ingilby Gallery.
