Last Thursday I returned to Manchester to help with the new Nature’s Library gallery. How exciting! A lot of progress has been made; the mounts are now finished and the cases are almost ready for the objects to be put in. I helped out with measuring out where objects will go so they can be appropriately positioned. This was where all the work I did previously with Kate paid off (see blog post) and we could accurately map out the footprint of the objects.
I also helped out with cleaning and tidying as there is certainly a lot of that that will need to be done before the gallery is due to open. I also helped David put these skulls on display:
So, although my traineeship has officially finished, I’m hoping there’ll be more opportunities to help with the new Nature’s Library gallery before it officially opens on the 26 April.
