Skeletons: Our Buried Bones

July 12 - September 3

Art Exhibitions Bristol May

Skeletons: Our Buried Bones, M Shed, 8 April – 3 September

See 12 human skeletons from Bristol and London, each with a unique story to tell – from a young man buried without ceremony in Tormarton 3,500 years ago during the Bronze Age, to a Romano-British couple found in a single stone coffin at Mangotsfield, and a child from a Victorian convent burial ground at St Catherine’s Court – who had undergone a post-mortem craniotomy. Children can reveal some of the science behind the stories in the Bone Lab – test their knowledge of bones; search for hidden clues to analyse skeletons themselves; and hear from experts of the excavation site, lab and museum. Please note: this exhibition contains real human remains; and children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
