'Hidden Lives: a story of discovery'
Friday 16th June - Sunday 24th December
Discover stories of ancient people, and how through DNA research we can reveal their hidden lives but also more about our shared story. There have been several archaeological excavations at the Wellcome Genome Campus undertaken by Oxford Archaeology East in the past twenty years, with many interesting finds. By combining archaeology with cutting-edge genomics research we are discovering who lived on this site thousands of years ago. Using archaeological finds, including human skeletal remains, along with film and hand-on activities, this exhibition will explore the hidden lives of our ancestors, and what analysing a genome can reveal about us all - past and present.
The Cultural Zone exhibition space is open on the third Saturday of the month for drop-in visits, and at other times for special events. Group visits are also very welcome, by arrangement.
