There have been several archaeological excavations at the Wellcome Genome Campus, with many interesting finds. By combining archaeology with cutting-edge genomics research we are discovering who lived on this site thousands of years ago. Using archaeological finds, including human skeletal remains, along with film and hand-on activities, this exhibition will explore the hidden lives of our ancestors, and what analysing a genome can reveal about us all - past and present.

The Cultural Zone exhibition space is open on the third Saturday of the month for drop-in visits, and at other times for special events. Group visits are also very welcome, by arrangement.
