    New Director at The Crags

    After a quarter of a century working on the pre-historic collections at Creswell, Ian Wall left the Crags for the (supposedly) sunnier climes of Cornwall at the end of the year.  He will long be remembered for his tremendous achievements and we all wish him the very best for the future.

    Our new Director is Roger Shelley, who comes with a wealth of experience from Derby, and before that, Chesterfield Museums.  A local and social historian by background, Roger is looking forward to getting to grips with the fascinating Ice Age and Stone Age evidence centred on Creswell and the limestone plateau. ‘The Crags are a powerful source of inspiration and pride for the people of north Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The team at the Visitor Centre and their many partners are all set to build on their previous great work, and I’ll be working with them to bring the story of this country’s earliest human history to life for new audiences – Creswell’s message is really one for our times, as all life strives to evolve in a world of dramatic climate changes.’
