In the 1950s, excavations revealed a number of Roman burials in Arbury. One lead-lined coffin, complete with a female skeleton, went on display in Cambridge. The exhibit inspired Sylvia Plath to write a poem: All the Dead Dears. That coffin is now back on display in a temporary exhibition at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology. This interactive gallery talk will help you discover more about the history of Roman Cambridge. Email sarah-jane.harknett@maa.cam.ac.uk to book your place or for more information
