NatSCA's Upcoming Events and Workshops

  • Skeleton Preparation Workshop

    (c) Leeds Museums and Galleries
    Wednesday, July 4, 2018 -
    09:30 to 16:00
    Historic England, Fort Cumberland, Portsmouth

    A day-long course in animal skeleton preparation. Learn how to skin, separate the limbs from the body and head, deflesh and prepare small mammal and bird carcasses. Historic England (HE) has an extensive, and growing, collection of animal skeletons that are used by zooarchaeologists for reference. They are therefore experts in preparing skeletons and are delivering this course for NatSCA in Portsmouth in July. Eva Fairnell and Polydora Baker will take you through the steps from carcass to skeleton using material at HE. The course covers everything apart from articulation.

  • Caring for Natural Science Collections: A one day event exploring advances in conservation

    NatSCA is hosting a one day event dedicated to museum conservation and its role in advancing the care of the wealth of specimens, objects and archives that form our natural science collections. Often considered to be a very specific subject area, this field is in reality highly diverse, dealing with a huge range of collections and materials in order to preserve the bio- and geo-diversity of our world, along with the associated archives, objects and stories linked to these collections.
