Today I got to start on the new project at the college and pretty pleased I can do it!
I think I’ve mentioned what this project invokes but I certainly don’t mind explaining it again! This project is similar to the last one as I am having to record and inventory another collection. However, the new project involves a particular collection at the museum has. It is quite a small collection, I think there are about 160 objects, but it’s very interesting as well as very sensitive. This is because it includes individual who most likely died before birth because of a pathology.
A few years ago a couple of students came in and went through this collection and made notes including any pathology observed. As the curator was not involved in this project she has asked me to go through the boxes and check their contents see if the students descriptions/comments are correct.
This project is going to test my knowledge in pathologies as well as perinatal remains. I’ve very excited about this project and am very much looking forward to getting stuck into it!
