Museum Connection

Eating oysters, catching fish and sailing the seas...

Poole people have used the sea and its shore for all sorts of things - finding food, having fun and setting sail.

Have you seen Poole Museum? In the museum there are oyster shells left behind by Poole's Saxon fishermen. Thousands of years ago the fishermen found the oysters on the beach, ate the animal and left the shells.
