Hidden Histories: Names and Faces



Hidden Histories: Names and Faces explores some of the personal histories associated with a selection of objects in the Fitzwilliam Museum. How did a bronze lion from Yemen make it to Cambridge? What was the painting, now in the Fitzwilliam Museum, that the art historian and spy Anthony Blunt purchased in 1933, the year he first travelled to Russia? Who discovered the Cambridge Hoard of medieval coins?
