FACE TO FACE WITH MEDIEVAL CAMBRIDGE - TRAIL - Pick up a free trail map and information from the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and take a short trip around Cambridge. Meet eight medieval individuals whose lives have been reconstructed by members of the ‘After the Plague’ project. Positioned at four different locations, you can engage with these unique people to learn about their experiences, jobs, and how they came to be in Cambridge. Come to the exhibition at the Old Divinity School - www.festivalofideas.cam.ac.uk/events/face-face-medieval-cambridge-exhibi... - to learn about the methods used by skeletal biologists and archaeologists to reconstruct the lives of the past inhabitants you met, including how we are able to estimate their attributes such as age, sex, stature, hair and eye colour, disease and diet just from their bones!
