Genomic Expressions

Genomic Expressions exhibition asks the question 'What does genomics mean to you?' to those who work at the Wellcome Genome Campus. Some answers may make you smile, some are heart-warming but all encourage us, the viewer, to reflect on our own answer to the question.

Discarded History: The Genizah of Medieval Cairo

Mon 15 May 2017 - Sat 28 October 2017

Cambridge University Library

For a thousand years the Jewish community of Old Cairo put their worn-out writings into a synagogue storage room, a genizah. Explore one of the greatest collections of Cambridge University Library and a remarkable survival of the medieval past. Discarded History: The Genizah of Medieval Cairo 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.
