Pressed into History
Event type: Talk
Location: Attenborough Studio
Free, no ticket required
The botanical collections are home to some of the oldest material in the Museum - pressed plants and botanical art in beautiful leather-bound books.
These magnificent tomes go back hundreds of years and can show us the very beginning of biology as a serious scientific discipline.
Meet Museum curator John Hunnex, who looks after some of these historical collections, and see some amazing specimens up-close.
