UNCOVERING SECRETS FROM THE PAST
The idea which brings together the items in this exhibit is that of something being hidden. In the case of objects such as the mammoth's tooth and the hand-axe, these objects have been buried for thousands of years and have been discovered, sometimes by accident and sometimes by deliberate digging. Their stories have been pieced together by geologists, zoologists and archaeologists through dating techniques and the knowledge gained about them increases as more discoveries turn up and comparisons can be made with other finds.
