Hidden Lives: A Story of Discovery

Sat 17 June - Sat 16 December

Wellcome Genome Campus

Hidden Lives: a story of discovery, the latest exhibition at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, combines archaeology with cutting-edge genomics research to unearth the secrets of some early South Cambridgeshire residents.

Featuring 15,000 year-old archaeological artefacts, including human skeletal remains, this exhibition explores the hidden lives of our ancestors, and how DNA analysis can be used to help us better understand our past as well as more about ourselves.

There have been several archaeological excavations at the Wellcome Genome Campus ovr the last 25 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 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.

A programme of talks and tours will be running on visit days to enhance your visit.

Cost: Free
