An exhibition on the fight to end slavery and how to tackle it in modern day Britain will run for another two weeks at Wisbech Museum.
The display uses the museum's collection and archive from Thomas Clarkson's anti-slavery campaign of more than 200 years ago.
It is used as a starting point to promote discussion of modern slavery and how to recognise and tackle it in Britain today.
It is part of the museum's articles for change project funded by the Museum Association's Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund.
Key anti-slavery campaigns are highlighted, including the work of Stop the Traffik founded in 2007.
