    The John Hugh Sutton Collection was established in memory of an outstanding classics student and resident of Trinity College who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in 1925.

    The Sutton Collection was developed by professor Cecil Scutt, with the aid of Cambridge archaeologist CT Seltman, and comprises a selection of coins, vases, plaster casts and other objects.
