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.
A collaborative project involving the Fitzwilliam Museum and a network of European museums housing important Ancient World collections. The project – and subsequent publication of an edited volume – seeks to contribute to the advancement of public archaeology as a theoretical discipline as well as a practice within museums. This is being achieved by shedding light to a vast range of current practices across important European museums and institutions, and by adding nuance to our understanding of the ever-evolving theoretical discourses and debates of public archaeology.
In preparation: Material Cultures in Public Engagement: Re-inventing Public Archaeology within Museum Collections. (Book in preparation, expected June 2019).
