Event description

Description

The Sarawak Museum houses thousands of objects and natural history specimens, which have been gathered together through the combined efforts of hundreds of collectors over more than 150 years. Each of these objects has its own story to tell about its creation, about the people who used it and about those who eventually deposited it in the museum. My talk will explore some of these tales - of the collectors from all over the world who contributed to this Kuching treasure-house, and the fascinating items they gathered to be preserved for future generations. It will give a taste of the wealth of knowledge about the history of Sarawak, and of the Museum itself, that is contained within these captivating collections.
