The exhibition features alongside some of the brilliant objects from our own collection here at Ely Museum, some amazing objects from the collections at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology in Cambridge too. There’s lots of great objects to see from coins & urns to animal shaped palettes and even a mummified Egyptian bird!
Come along and learn more about the animals that roamed the ancient fens from the tusks and bones they left behind & imagine what life as an Anglo Saxon or Roman person might be like by seeing the objects they used & decorated with animals too
This family-friendly exhibition is great for all ages and entry is included with your normal admission ticket!
