Audit reaches 4000 objects
By Rachel Smith, Curator – Social History & World Cultures
The first stage of the project is to audit all of the Social History collection to work out exactly what we have got. We’ve been busy in the main Social History store and found some intriguing curiosities while going through the objects. As well as a microphone that was used by King George VI to talk to the people of Plymouth, there is an entire Tudor ceiling in pieces and a knitted breakfast!
Thanks to the help of volunteers and other members of staff, progress has been good and we have audited more than 4000 objects already.
We will be looking for more volunteers to help with the next stages of the project, so keep an eye on the museum volunteer page for new opportunities.
