MEDIAEVAL carvings are the inspiration for a new art exhibition at Royston museum.
Local artist Liz Beardwell will be displaying Impressions, a series of linocuts printed using the Columbian Printing Press which is now based at the museum.
To mark the opening of the exhibition, she gave a demonstration on the printing press, which was used to print the first Crow in 1855.
A spokesman for Royston museum said: "Liz previously exhibited prints inspired by the carvings in Royston Cave and this has widened into an interest in mediaeval carvings generally."

Some of the prints depict some British birds, including the Royston Crow, and images of fabled animals often found as "misericords" in ancient churches.
Liz, who has lived in Royston for more than 30 years and has a degree from the Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University, has also included some paintings of plants, and patterns inspired by Henri Matisse.
