Have you ever wanted to discover the hidden world behind the scenes of a museum? Or want to have a go at academic research? Become a researcher for a day and join us in our quest to analyse the pharmacy collection at the Manchester Museum.
Housed in the Museum’s Herbarium, the Materia Medica collection consists of over 800 specimens in glass jars. The plants, animals and minerals in this collection were used to teach medicine at the University of Manchester during the 19th and 20th centuries. You will explore the fascinating world of interdisciplinary research and be introduced to themes from the history of pharmacy, material culture and historical archaeology as well as how to handle museum objects. Sign up through Eventbrite and contribute to current research by joining the research team for a morning or afternoon!
