Skeletons: Our Buried Bones

Twelve human skeletons from Bristol and London, each with a unique story to tell.

A young man, buried without ceremony in South Gloucestershire 3,500 years ago. A Roman couple found in a single stone coffin and a girl from a Victorian burial ground.

They reflect society’s rich and varied past and the changing face of the places we live and work in today.

Alongside the exhibition, an exploratory space reveals some of the science behind the stories. Test your knowledge of bones; search for hidden clues to analyse skeletons yourself; and hear from experts of the excavation site, lab and museum.

A touring exhibition from Museum of London and Wellcome TrustPlease note this exhibition contains human remains.
