We have invited PhD students who carry out research here at UCL to showcase just one object from the Museum’s collection of 68,000 and tell you what they know about it. Elizabeth Jones will be joining us after having rummaged through the drawers and cupboards to choose her object. Find out more about Elizabeth’s work on the history of research on ancient DNA, the search and recovery of genetic material from fossil plants and animals.
Don’t worry if you can’t stay for the whole hour, doors open at 1pm with the talk starting at 1:15pm and lasts around 30 minutes after which the speaker will be on hand to show you in more detail his chosen object for the last 15 minutes. Stay for the whole hour or just dip in for the talk over your lunchtime and discover the stories hidden away in our collection. This event is free and there is no need to book.
