Unlocking Lapworth's Legacy Exhibition

The Lapworth Museum is named after a man who nobody alive today has ever met, so how much can we ever really know about him?

Explore the life and archive of Charles Lapworth at this free temporary exhibition at the Lapworth Museum of Geology, University of Birmingham. The exhibition looks at Lapworth's career whilst focussing on some of the personal stories unearthed from his archive during an 18-month Archives Revealed funded project to catalogue his extensive archive collection.

For more information on the project, please see our blog or take a look at our online catalogue.
