Royal Flying Corps playing cards are on display at the Treasure House in Beverley, marking the 100th Anniversary year of the RAF.
The cards form part of a display in the museum of treasures acquired through the Portable Antiquity Scheme and public donations to East Riding Museum services collections.
They can be viewed for the next few months, until 31 May. Visitors can come to the museum gallery to see Roman coins and Anglo Saxon metalwork, alongside an East Riding Yeomanry sporting trophy and the World War II nursing medals belonging to Mary Robinson of Bridlington.
Dr David Marchant, museum registrar, said: ‘This is a great opportunity for our visitors to view some of the rich variety of finds made by metal detectorists in the East Riding of Yorkshire, as well as other recent donations to the collections. The recent acquisitions display will be refreshed at least twice a year, depending on what new artefacts we have received.”
Opening times at the Treasure House in Champney Road are: Monday to Friday 9.30am – 5pm; Saturday 9.30am – 4.30pm. Open until 8pm on Tuesday and Thursday every week.
