Discarded history: the genizah of medieval Cairo
This event is in the past.
The UL's current exhibition, 'Discarded history: the genizah of medieval Cairo', provides a window on the life of a community a thousand years ago – a Jewish community in the centre of a thriving Islamic empire: international in outlook, multicultural in make up, devout to its core.
The exhibition will be open the following times across the Alumni Festival weekend:
Friday, 22 September - 9am-6pm
Saturday, 23 September - 9am-4.30pm
Please note that the exhibition is closed on Sunday, 24 September.
If you'd like to explore one of the UL’s greatest collections with an exhibition curator, join a tour of the exhibition on Friday, 22 September at 12pm.
Pit your wits against the UL's clue-setters
Gather your friends and crack the clues of the genizah's secrets with the UL's escape game, 'Cluescape'.
This event is free to attend and advance booking is not necessary.
This exhibition takes place in the UL's Milstein Exhibition Centre.
