Sat. 28 November 2020 at 10:30 am

To be held by Zoom video conferencing

A talk by Dave Williams (previously at the OU)

Dave’s talk will look at how the mineral collection held at Truro Museum got to be there, and the work that been done to make it accessible, including digitisation of images using expertise from the Open University.  And of course, the involvement of the late much loved Bob Symes who was a stalwart of the DA and Sidmouth Museum as well as his previous illustrious career as Keeper of Minerals at the Natural History Museum.
