Cambridge lecturer Solomon Schechter among thousands of Genizah fragments in his office after their transportation from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Cairo.

Discarded History: The Genizah of Medieval Cairo

This exhibition provides a window on the life of a community a thousand years ago – a Jewish community in the centre of a thriving Islamic empire, international in outlook, multicultural in make up, devout to its core.

The Year That Made Antarctica
People, politics & the International Geophysical Year
Wednesday 26 April – Saturday 9 September 2017

Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet and laid the foundations for the Antarctic Treaty which has preserved the continent for science and peaceful activity for almost sixty years.
