Science Festival

Cambridge Science Festival gives the public the opportunity to explore Cambridge Science. There are opportunities to explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern and to raise aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

Science of Archaeology:
The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research and the Division of Archaeology will be open from 10.30am to 4.00pm on Saturday 19th March for Science of Archaeology.

Drop in event.  All welcome - great for families.

Were Neanderthals fussy eaters?  Was the skeleton in your cupboard a man or a woman, and did it look after its teeth? 

Science can help archaeologists answer these questions, and many others.  Discover the secrets revealed by pots, plants soils, bones and maybe even fossilised poo!
