About the exhibition
Students will see real and rare specimens and objects alongside astonishingly lifelike models. They will take a journey through human evolution set against dramatic landscapes and timelines. Along the way they will discover the latest scientific research into the ancient human occupation of Britain and what it reveals about our lives today.
