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.
