Tails from Mycenae: A Temporary Display

Explore the roles that animals played in the lives of the Mycenaens in a display of rarely-seen objects from the Museum's collection. From octopuses to lions, a wide range of creatures is depicted on Mycenaean objects, giving us a glimpse into the everyday interactions between humans and animals in the Bronze Age.

The Mycenaean menagerie will be creeping, crawling and flying onto display in Bay C of the Cast Gallery from Wednesday 15th March.

Coming this April:


Friday 21st April -  Friday 9th June 2017

Lost is a poignant exhibition by artist Issam Kourbaj exploring the plight of Syrian refugees, through plaster casts of items of clothing from those lost at sea. His work Dark Water, Burning World will be on display in Cambridge at the Fitzwilliam Museum from 13th March.
