Audio slideshow: Assembling Bodies

Tall or short, large or small - the human body comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and that is perhaps why it has been interpreted in so many different ways.

Cambridge University's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is looking at how bodies have been imagined and transformed both culturally and medically.

Take a tour with Senior Curator for Anthropology, Anita Herle.
