Where does Natural History fit in our current Cultural Landscape? Our panel will invite the audience to discuss this fascinating meeting of human and natural history as embodied by the wondrous and historic collection of curiosities in the Victorian home of the BNSS.
After a tea break, Creative Writing students from the University of Southampton and local Bournemouth writers will read from their location-aware stories inspired by the people and collections of the BNSS.
