The Moyse's Hall Museum is one of England's few surviving Norman houses and it is believed to be the oldest town house in East Anglia (it dates from around 1180). The Museum has a fine selection of unsavoury items such as man-traps, gibbet cages, mummified cats and wrinkled shoes - built into the walls of houses to ward off evil spirits. Most chilling of all, relics of the Murder in the Red Barn, celebrated in Victorian melodrama, including the guilty William Corder's scalp and a book bound in his skin!
