I spent Thursday and Friday last week at the NatSCA conference 2013.  NatSCA, who part-fund my traineeship, are a great organisation facilitating the transfer of skills and expertise throughout the natural sciences curatorial community.  This year’s conference was in York at the Yorkshire museum.

Kirsty (my fellow trainee based at Leeds) and I gave a talk on our experiences during the traineeship.  It was well-received, and we both had a brilliant time meeting up with some familiar faces as well as meeting some new ones.  The talks were varied and intesting and I particulalry enjoyed the panel discussion about collection reviews and the tour around the museum gardens.  There was also an intersting talk about how York’s egg collection is helping current zooarchaeological research.
