@ the University of Nottingham Museum

Thousands of years before a museum stood at Creswell Crags, the gorge and its caves were inhabited by the original collectors of bones, teeth and stone tools. This exhibition, curated by Dr Angharad Jones, Curator at Creswell Crags, will highlight the importance of these species (hyaenas, birds, Neanderthals and early modern humans), and the items they collected, in helping us to understand the Ice Age of Creswell Crags.

This exhibition is specially curated for the University of Nottingham Museum and includes current work and research as well as collections not usually on display at Creswell Crags.
