Crossroads: travelling through the Middle Ages

Crossroads is a journey through the Middle Ages that brings together top exhibits from leading artefact collectors, on 15 September 2017. The exhibition’s eight themes are narrated by early Medieval travellers who connect the artefacts to the themes through film, publications and digital applications. Highlights include an Egyptian lady on a fragment of cloth from late antiquity, a fierce Germanic god on a gilded buckle from a female grave of the Pannonian Avars, and a digitally reconstructed sarcophagus from Syria that would have contained a saint.
