Civilisations: The Exhibition

Civilisations: The Exhibition


What makes a civilised society?

Is it religion, government, art, literature or is it our morals, human rights or how we protect libraries and other public institutions? 

Explore books from our collections and question what civilisation is and what it means to be human. How has the human body been depicted over time and locally how has Leeds changed and developed and grown a public library service.

Made possible with Art Fund support

Inspired by BBC Civilisations
