Nubia: Past and Present

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

This photographic exhibition by Andrew Crowe is the result of an anthropological research project led by Sally-Ann Ashton, then Senior Assistant Keeper in the Department of Antiquities at the Fitzwilliam Museum. It aims to investigate the presentation and perception of Nubian identity, and includes photographic and film work of Andrew Crowe. The fieldwork took place in January and February 2010 in southern Egypt and northern Sudan, and was funded by the British Academy.
