ObjProdDateearly 20th cent?
ObjectHistoryNoteDuke of Somerset’s Helmet or Colonel John Fenwick’s Salade. Dated to c1415. In 1865 part of a helmet was suspended above the site of a former shrine. It is much more probable that it belonged to the vanquished Duke of Somerset, who was beheaded in Hexham Market Place in 1464, and was buried by the Austin Canons within their church. In 1989, under an agreement between the Rector and Tynedale District Council, it was transferred on loan to the Border History Museum and is now displayed in the Old Gaol.

ObjectHistoryNote“Bosdet was a self-funded project filmed in three countries over eight months. It was Maya and Mark’s first experience of making a longer-form documentary. On completion, in September 2009, it had two sell-out screenings and was shown at both the Branchage and New Jersey Film Festivals in 2010. The first DVD run was a sell-out and all production costs were recouped. Additional funding and in-kind support came from: Jersey Heritage, The Société Jersiaise, the Glass Rainbow Trust and Jersey Film Society. A French-subtitled copy of Bosdet is shown daily in the Jersey Museum Cinema.” [Maya Hammarsal website — see URL link]
