Catherine Ireton: everything is done by ordinary people

In 2014 singer/songwriter Catherine Ireton wrote three beautiful songs inspired by the Museum as part of Curating Cambridge, a celebration of our city, our stories, our stuff. You can still listen to the songs Catherine wrote for us on her website.  

 

AccessArt: Let's Explore Hercules!

This interactive website tells you all about our Farnese Hercules statue. Click through to find out more about what makes the heroic Hercules so famous, about  the original statue, which stood in the Baths of Caracalla at Rome, and even about how a cast is made.

 

Write like the Ancients

This series of short videos uses artefacts in the Museum of Classical Archaeology and the Fitzwilliam Museum to introduce the different scripts and ways of writing in the ancient world. Learn here not just about the ways in which Latin and Greek were written, but also much earlier types of text like Linear B - a prehistoric way of writing ancient Greek.
