A recent two-year project, funded by the Clothworkers' Foundation, allowed Jeremy Uden, Deputy Head of Conservation, to conserve and investigate the Cook Voyage collections at the Pitt Rivers. He will talk about his research and fascinating new information gained about the objects. Come along and find out more about this historic and important collection through the eyes of a conservator. The Cook Voyage collection is due for redisplay in the Museum soon.
