Award of National Archives Grant


Award of National Archives Grant

We are truly delighted to announce that we have received a grant from The National Archives to catalogue the archive of Prof Charles Lapworth.

This archive is one of the most complete of any Victorian or Edwardian geologist in the UK. The archive covers popular themes such as fossils, dinosaurs, natural hazards environmental change. The project will unlock the potential of this incredible, interdisciplinary resource.

An online catalogue will provide access to its unique content, and linked museum objects. Whilst an innovative public engagement programme, including online exhibitions, will engage new and existing archive users. Who knows what kind of fascinating stories will be uncovered by our archivist?

This grant is also kindly supported by The Pilgrim Trust and The Wolfson Foundation.
