From Neolithic to Now Norris Exhibition

This is a temporary page to test the functionality of the audio files accompanying the From Neolithic to Now Exhibition at the Norris Museum, when uploaded to the web.

The Norris Museum (Museum of Huntingdonshire) is launching a new exhibition to take visitors on a journey through at least 5000 years to the present. It throws a fresh light on how inventions in ceramics, glass and printing in the distant past have been moulded and adapted to our very current needs and technologies. Exhibits include a 3,500 year old Babylonian cylinder seal, an Elizabethan bible from the days of jousting knights, through to electronic components from a local Robot competition. The exhibition runs from 4 March to 20th May 2023.
