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.
Discover a variety of ancient writing systems used in the eastern Mediterranean, including a famous bilingual inscription from Idalion, Cyprus.
This display is the result of a collaboration between the Fitzwilliam Museum, the British Museum, and the research project, Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems (CREWS).
Exhibition run: Tuesday 16th January 2018 to
Sunday 10th June 2018
