Faces from the Past: Images on medieval pottery

The University of Nottingham Museum
Tuesday 15 October 2019 - Sunday 05 January 2020

This exhibition will look at the different types of human figures displayed on medieval pottery including the famous Face Pots. Human images appear on ceramic vessels from the late 11th century to mid-15th century and this display will examine how and why these were made.

The exhibition is part of Archaeology and Collections in the East Midlands, an Exhibition Programme that introduces and examines some of the incredible work currently being undertaken throughout the East Midlands by archaeologists, community groups and museums. It also introduces unseen regional collections not usually on display.

In collaboration with Nottingham City Museums and Galleries.

Open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm
Sunday 12noon-4pm
Closed Mondays
