Using objects left behind by our ancestors, this DVD explores different aspects of the city’s past and the lives of the men and women who were part of them.

A Viking war axe takes us back 1000 years to a violent episode in Coventry’s history, a medieval toilet seat recalls the lavatory arrangements of our forbears and a cross made of nails tells the remarkable story of a world-wide movement that grew from Coventry’s war-time destruction.

A stonemasons chisel, a 300 year old clock, a workhouse uniform button and an 1897 Daimler are among the other objects that provide a fascinating new look at Coventry’s past.

Most of the objects have been selected from the collections of the Herbert Museum, Coventry Transport Museum and Coventry Cathedral.
