Gun of the Day - NRA Museums 2017-10-18 13:00

GUN OF THE DAY - Relic Sharps Carbine Our relic GOTD was found long ago near Appomattox Court House in Virginia, an item discovered by a metal detector enthusiast checking out the remains of Confederate campsites. After the surrender in 1865, some former soldiers elected to destroy their arms and munitions rather than turn them over. The badly warped barrel of this .52 caliber Sharps breechloading was probably heated up in a fire and then wrapped around a nearby tree. #GunOfTheDay #NRAmuseums #history #guns

The Palaeolithic – literally ‘Old Stone Age’ – is the longest period of human development and adaptation, with the first stone tools made 3.3 million years ago in Kenya. This flint handaxe is around 500,000 years old and was discovered in Boxgrove, Sussex. Join us this afternoon at 15.00 BST for a #FacebookLive exploring the deep history of the various human species. Curator Beccy Scott will be looking at tools that at least four different human species used over the course of 2 million years.
