Prehistoric Autopsy Uncovered - Horniman Museum

Exhibition preview

TO CELEBRATE the recent BBC Two series Prehistoric Autopsy, the Horniman Museum and Gardens is hosting a new hands-on exhibition aimed at families with children aged 7-12 years old.

Entitled Prehistoric Autopsy Uncovered, it will be on display from Wednesday, November 14 to Sunday, November 18, 2012.

Visitors will come face-to-face with three of our earliest ancestors: a Neanderthal, a Homo Erectus and an Australopithecus Afarensis.

The centerpiece of the exhibition will be the actual models used in the television series which have been rebuilt in extraordinary detail based on fragmented remains of ancient bones and the latest scientific research.

There will also be interactive activities and games and a chance to recreate some of the shell jewellery that our ancestors may have once worn.

Admission: Free.

Times: 10:30am – 5:30pm.

Horniman Museum and Gardens, 100 London Road, Forest Hill, London, SE23 3PQ
