Exhibition Stops Off in Cambridge

Discover the story of evolution at the University of Cambridge's Botanic Garden.

'A Walk Through Time' is a temporary exhibition, sponsored by BP, and runs until Sunday.

Ninety panels of text and colourful illustrations are on display along a one-kilometre path through the Garden, depicting the 5,000 million year story of the evolution of the earth and its life forms, including the origin of man.

Christine Preston from the Botanic Garden said that the purpose of the Walk is to present the past as a rich context for identifying and addressing fundamental personal, corporate or society issues, and as a perspective for making decisions regarding human influence on the future of all life.

'A Walk Through Time' was created in 1997 by employees of the Hewlett-Packard Company, in collaboration with external experts. The touring exhibition was subsequently donated by HPLabs to the not-for-profit Foundation for Global Community based in California and has been appreciated by audiences throughout the world.

'A Walk Through Time' is free but normal admission charges to the Garden apply - £2 adult, £1.50 for senior citizens and children from five to17, under fives are free.
