We will be unveiling our new acquisitions throughout the duration of the Cambridge Festival. Bit by bit, we will show you ancient metal objects, small statuette heads and many examples of 3000-year-old pottery.

Cypriot Jug: a Teaser

Curator Dr Susanne Turner explores the boxes and drawers of artefacts which are usually kept under lock and key behind the scenes. From Greek and Roman artefacts to tiny bits of broken pottery to miniatures - who knows what she might find? 

Introduction: How the museum received these objects. 

Every cast tells two stories.
One ancient. One modern.

Admission is free.
