Sedgwick Museum Conservator, Sarah Wallace-Johnson, writes about working from home and using the opportunity to find fascinating things in nature in our own gardens.



Women’s contribution to geological science can be ‘seen and heard’ in the Collections at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, and especially in the Archives.

On Sunday 8th March 2020 it’s International Women’s Day, an opportunity to celebrate women's achievement as well as raising awareness and taking action for equality. The Sedgwick Museum is using this important date in the calendar to talk about its collections from a different narrative, one that is equally valid but not previously visible.
