Jerusalem: Coinage and empire from antiquity to the 19th century
β: This is a Beta release of the Fitzwilliam Museum's potential new website. We want to co-design
our Virtual Museum presence with you. You can return to our current site at any time.
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.
The Holy City of Jerusalem is central to the three Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Control of the city has been contested by the great empires of the region and has changed hands many times. This special display explores the history of Jerusalem through the coins minted and used in the city from the earliest coinage to that of the Ottoman Empire.
Exhibition run: Tuesday 02nd October 2018 to
