Slavery and Abolition: Collections Uncovered

All day from Friday 26 March until Sunday 4 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Wisbech & Fenland Museum and St John's College collaborate on an online exhibition in which their collections of material on slavery and the abolition movement are combined in public for the first time. As well as the personal campaign materials of abolitionist Thomas Clarkson, the exhibition includes original manuscript material relating to the day-to-day economic realities of Jamaican sugar plantations, and printed works that variously expose and conceal slavery's horrors.
