Historic Arundel in Sussex is most famous for its 900 year old castle. You can learn more about the history of the castle and town at award winning, Arundel Museum. Discover how millions of years ago, Arundel was covered by a warm Cretaceous sea and meet the creatures that thrived in it. Meet Homo heidelbergensis, who, 500,000 years ago lived in the area, and the neanderthals who hunted mammoths in Palaeolithic Arundel. Discover objects left behind by the Romans who lived locally. Learn how the port of Arundel was a crucial industrial hub during the last century and how the Castle Stables provided horses for the war effort in the First World War.
