The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica

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.

Elephants, Deities and Ashoka’s Pillar: Coins of India from antiquity to the present

Tue 16 May - Sun 1 October

Fitzwilliam Museum

As part of the commemoration in 2017 of the 70th anniversary of Indian independence - marked by the UK-India Year of Culture - this exhibition, drawn from the Fitzwilliam’s world-class numismatic collection, will explore the history of India through coins produced from the 4th century BC until recent times. Cultural, religious, economic and political developments are richly illustrated by the coins on show. They focus on representative periods of India’s history, ending with a display of banknotes and coins produced since India became independent in 1947.

This exhibition forms part of the University of Cambridge Museums' India Unboxed programme.

Cost: Free
