Fitzwilliam Museum

Few museums in the world contain on a single site collections of such variety and depth. The collections of the Department of Antiquities offer vivid glimpses of many aspects of ancient life, from funerary beliefs and customs to technology, sport, writing or the role of women. The collection includes objects representing many of the major civilizations and empires of the Ancient Near East, Cyprus, Greece and the Roman Empire. The museum shows European & Oriental sculpture and decorative arts, including pottery, porcelain, glass, textiles, fans, furniture, lacquer work, clocks and watches, metalwork, jewellery and armour. Medieval & Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, manuscript and early printed music, fine printed books, literary autographs and archives are also presented. Paintings, drawings and prints of European, American and Asian schools, from the thirteenth century to the present day also find a place. Ancient, medieval and modern coins, medals, tokens, banknotes and other forms of money from all parts of the world are exhibited.
