The oldest object on display is the 1.8 million-year-old stone tool from Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, meaning some exhibits in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology span far beyond the history of modern humans.

They lead up to contemporary exhibits that chronicle modern life across the globe.

There’s a children’s trail that will lead them through the three main galleries, and stand-out spectacles include the totem pole and a canoe carved out of a tree.

One of the University of Cambridge’s museums, so it’s free and in the city centre.

More information can be found on the museum’s website.
