Swing Low, Sweet Chariot…

“Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home.” may be sung by the crowds at Twickenham but may soon be heard in our corner of East Yorkshire.

The reconstruction of the Wetwang Chariot, a centre piece of the British Museum’s Celts exhibition (as seen below), could be returning to SAM at our new premises.

Negotiations are at an early stage but it is an exciting possibility that the chariot could return to take its place in the very heartland of chariot burials in England.
