Latest issue: CAM 76


Celebrate CAM’s fresh new look, plus 200 years of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and take to the road for one rather big adventure.

Highlights include:

  • Ticket to ride: One Cambridge coach, one international incident, one rather big adventure. How a 1960s road trip survived border disputes, revolution and high society
  • My room, your room: Historian, critic and broadcaster Christopher Frayling meets the current occupant of his old room at Churchill and talks inspired designs and unrespectable hobbies
  • A few good things: As the Fitzwilliam Museum turns 200, Dr Mary Laven traces our history through a fascination with objects
  • On time: Were you up with the larks or the last to bed? Claire Tomalin, Patricia Duncker and others give us their best of times in Cambridge.
  • Fractured memories: Dementia is a brutal diagnosis. Becky Allen examines the research being undertaken in Cambridge
